Verify first that the battery is not drained or dead. Try charging it from a computer using the USB cable that is included with the package if it is not charging in your car. The fuse located on the tip of the vehicle adapter might have blown causing the gadget not to charge the battery. Replace the fuse if it is blown by unscrewing the black round end piece and remove it. Make sure the small pieces are put together back in the proper place.

    The battery is definitely replaceable but you need the right tools to open disassemble the gadget or the case and the LCD flex can be damaged. It is recommended to have it replaced by an experienced technician with the right tools. You can purchase the battery replacement here with the replacement procedure if you decide to do it yourself.
