Expensive paperweight

We have new chain of small shops called "Zabka". Unfortunately, they have messed up computers, and are very willing to advertise one set of prices and ask for different prices, and pretty unwilling to correct they mistakes. Be very careful when purchasing items "for sale". Today, their fraud was taken to new level. Big sticker in the window basically says "30Kc off purchases above 150Kc", unfortunately that is not how it works. At the end the story is "we are sorry but our computer will not allow us...".

But that was small problem. Today, I got replacement battery for Sharp Zaurus C3000 (spitz). Unfortunately, it has 0V on the terminals, and (as you'd expect) will not charge :-(.
