Fried Sterlingtek Battery??

I've been some Sterlingtek batteries along with my Canon original for over a year now, and suddenly one of them doesn't seem to want to be charged. The charger turns green, but the camera says that the battery is dead.

Normal? Is this the useful life of one of these batteries (about 1 year rotated with a couple of others - maybe charged around 20x)?

I had always been a big proponent of the 2nd hand batteries, but???

Thanks for any input...
