Moto g 3 Dead Battery

Any suggestions please on how to revive a dead battery. It has died previously but leaving it on charge for a good few hours usually fixes it. But not this time. Can the battery be replaced? Thanks.

I have had issues before when I have needed to use a higher power charger when the battery is completely depleted. 2 or 2.4 amps usually.
I had a dead battery in a moto X - just bought one from ebay and it's a simple job to replace
do ebay sell one?

​Thanks I will try that. I have it plugged in to a multi charger thing although on its own part time. I will see if I have a 2.4. I presume it will state the rating on the charger.

​I didn't think that it was possible as it says the battery cannot be removed.
This is a manufacturuers way of forcing you into an upgrade. They usually glue the battery in. A good repair shop can easily manage to replace it for you without damaging the phone. Many phone manufacturers have adopted this sneeky practice,

Greedy capitalists.
if they sell a battery then it can be done- I have replaced the battery in my BMW remote fob before (you need a knife and a soldering iron but it can be done - but that's not what bmw say)
there seem to be loads of guides - have you watched one?

Thanks all. I am not sure if I want to muck around with the phone. I don't know how much a replacement battery would cost but I think the phones come on sale occasionally for under £100 so I shall wait a while.
You should be able to replace it fairly simply. Before I bought the Moto G4 I confirmed that I could (if I needed to) replace the “non-removable” battery. It turns out it’s essentially like a replaceable battery, but just kinda taped in. I’d imagine the G3 is similar. I found plenty of G4 batteries on sale on eBay. As someone already said - there should be plenty of guides online.
