    new tf103.. battery shot/defective tablet?

    so I just purchased a new tf103. wouldn't turn on so I assumed the battery was dead. charged it for a little while and it turns on with 60% battery life, after a few mins of messing with it, it just shuts down and won't turn on again. I try charging it again and the same thing happens. could the battery be bad and just dead from sitting for so long (date on the box was 6/2014). I wonder if I should return it or do I have to do a full charge and discharge to bring the battery back to life. obviously the battery isn't dead because it shuts down when there's battery life left. it's pretty random so I wonder if its just a bad tablet/battery. (box had a nice dent in it so I wonder if its damaged)

    note: I also get no green battery or any type of notification that its charging when its dead. Only when I've charged it for awhile does it show up on the screen and that's when I can turn it on.

    Welcome to the forum

    I would exchange it, but, there is one other thing you could try. Plug it into a running computer, (trickle charge) for at least 5 hours and see if the condition changes.
