Bought new EN-EL15 battery (was fully discharged)

I went out yesterday and bought one as a 2nd backupI was curious to see how much charge was left, but the camera didn't even want to turn on, so it was fully discharged.   Looking at the date of manufacture, it was January 2016, so it  has been sitting for 14 months.

I read somewhere that it is bad to let Lithium Ion drain completely down...which as is in this case.

So just wondering if I should return/exchange it and get it from somewhere else that might not have been sitting that long on the shelf?
