    Today at work my LG G3 died, which isn't unusual. I first noticed it wouldn't charge on my car charger, but when I got home and plugged it into the wall charger it still wouldn't. My phone is recognising that it's plugged in (it shows the little lightning bolt) but it wont budge past 0% and the red LED that normally holds steady is blinking pretty rapidly. Is there anyway to fix this or should I take it to get looked at? It's been plugged in for about an hour now.

    Welcome to the forums. I would leave it plugged in a little longer. When a battery drains to 0, it usually takes a little longer for it to become useful. If you are going to keep this device for a while, I would consider buying a couple spare batteries.

    At 0 charge, the battery is pre-charging - it won't have any power until it gets to about 20%. Then it'll start charging. Leave it plugged in at least overnight. (I've brought back batteries that were dropped to what the phone calls 0% more than once - but I leave them on the charger at least 24 hours for the first charge, so they go through a couple of mini-top-offs.)

    In the future, never let the battery drop below 40% before recharging it. (See The Care and Feeding of Lithium Polymer Batteries.) If you have to have more time than that gives you, buy a power bank and charge the phone when it reaches 40%.
