The phone did recognize the power cord being plugged in (lightning bolt shows up). The original charger was used, and there are no signs of corrosion. I put the original battery back in and the phone charges without issue. I put the bad battery in another phone and it exhibits the same error state. Since the issue tracks with the battery hardware who can I contact to get a new replacement battery.
