Portable Dell Axim X5 - is it the battery?

    I recently bought a Dell Axim X5 PDA from ebay. It arrived boxed up, and brand new, but has obviously been sitting in stock for a few years.

    Upon connecting it to the mains it seemed to be charging - showed a red light that after a few hours turned green - it switches on and works fine on the charger, but as soon as i disconnect it, it loses power completely. Doesn't even work for a few seconds.

    The "Power" applet in the control panel shows it to have a 100% charge.

    Does this sound like the battery, or a hardware problem with the PDA? As it has been sat for a few years I think the battery may just be f****d, is this likely?

    I have tried charging it overnight and it made no difference. Also tried soft and hard resets.

    Also, can anyone recommend a good wireless card that will work with this PDA (Pocket PC 2002)?
