all batteries are finicky
it depends on the formula
it depends how it was stored
it depends on if it was ever discharged too low
a lot of factors...
FWIIW...I had a 6 year old NiMH battery from niterider that gave me 4 hour runtimes when
new, and 4 hour runtimes today, hot or cold, the battery was awesome.
there are way too many factors related to extending the useable life of a rechargeable.
suck it up and get a new battery is all you can do...
a company cannot warranty a battery that is over 180 days old [typically], because there
are some common mistakes an owner can do to kill a battery, and companies would go broke
replacing all customer mistakes. if the battery is defective it'll show itself within the first months.
after that you have to say it was a good battery.
charging circuitry problems can kill one, short circuits...etc.
sep. 2005 ? you are SOL.
