Mini 0805
Some while back the battery in my Mini 0805 showed signs that it was nearly EoL, after I'd had the camera for a couple of years. About two months ago, I bought a replacement battery off of Amazon, soldered it in, and the cam seemed to work OK for a while. Now I'm getting "Low Battery" indication almost immediately on shutting off the external power to the camera. I tried plugging the cam into a 120V USB charger at my desk. The red charging indicator shut off after a few minutes, and when I powered the cam on, I got a "Low Batt" indication and the cam shut down.

Do I want to try opening this thing up and replacing the battery yet again, or should I just punt and replace the camera?

your e-bay battery was probably a hoax. You can always replace with a lower mAh batt (which is what I did) because the camera only needs the battery to shut down properly after power is yanked.
