    Welcome to Android Central.

    It may be that the charging procedure is not working because of a faulty USB lead, or possibly a dirty or damaged USB port. Are you able to try another lead, and possibly charger?

    "left it there for a while"

    How long is "a while"? If the battery was totally dead, "a while" should be about 8-12 hours. If you keep checking it every 15 minutes, that's 8-12 hours since the last time you checked it.

    The precharge (which is the first thing that happens with a dead battery) doesn't put much power into the battery, so if you keep interrupting it by trying to turn the phone on, you keep killing the battery.
