Default Li-Poly question---discharged too low?

Guys, I have an Electrifly 720 mah 2-cell Li-Poly pack. I normally charge this with a Sirius Lithium charger. Went to connect it today, and it won't recognize that the battery is plugged in. I noticed that I had left the switch in the "ON" position after flying last time. Can you run these batteries down this way? I know my Sirius charger needs about 0.5 mah to recognize that a battery is present and connected. If you can destroy a battery this way, I'd be very disappointed.

what is the voltage? yes you probably destroyed the battery, anything below 3.0 volts/cell resting and the battery is either damaged or will have a very short life.

You probably have a very attractive paper weight. But hey, I have good news, I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico.
