Probably not but if it was never charged and is not puffy you can try charging it and see if it will take.
What charger do you use?

I'm sorry, I should have mentioned that the battery is still in the sealed unopened plastic bag. It also does not have a connector on the discharge leads. Battery was included in the kit from ALIGN.

Happy to report, the battery is doing fine. I have four flights on it and it's like a new one........only it's ten years old.

Yeah, they have a coating in the battery that extends the shelf life and that is why they take a few charges to be fully broken in and developing full power.
Interesting to learn that it works for that long!
