One suggestion is to charge it. Odds are you mean a no-longer-functional battery that has seen its best days come and go. Lithiums can't be shocked into new life like nickel cadmiums could. Your best bet is to get a new battery and be sure to recycle the old one.

I revived my cell phone battery! There’s a new way called EZbattery (www.EZbattery.info) to bring nearly any type of old battery back to life so it’s just like new again. This method works with nearly every type of battery out there ...and it’s simple and quick. In case you’re wondering, you’ll be able to bring car, phone, and laptop batteries back to life with this. It even works with solar/off-grid, marine, golf cart, and forklift batteries. Plus, many more!

+1. Consider also that lithium batteries are, in some ways, one straw short of a bomb. Do not try to "shock" one back to life or you may hurt yourself. As Frollard said, recycle it.

When it's "knackered" it's off to the "knacker's yard" - get a new one.

Yes you can jump-start a cellphone battery like you would a car battery. I have done it and it worked. I have had to jump start the battery several times though so the battery would probably be best replaced then jump started in this fashion.
You can find a video tutorial here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvC67ZR6zfU
Video is quit annoying and I would suggest turning down your speakers. Is a old phone he is charging. I have a Blackberry 8220 and this worked fine with my phone battery.

But you agree with the rest of us that replacement is best?
