Default Does this sound like a dead battery?

My N4 started to have battery issues after the kitkat update lasting no longer than 6 hours even turned off. It also started to take longer to charge and gradually this got worse and now all I get is a red light when plugged in but I can't turn it on now.

I guess my battery is stuffed, but could it be that the upgrade did this or (I hope) it was just a coincidence.

I've ordered a new battery and tools but I would appreciate your thoughts on this.

It has been written that the battery shouldn't be run down past 15%. I don't know this for a fact, but that could be one of the issues. Another issue would be an app that is constantly running, but there's no way to find out if you can't boot the phone.

As far as the upgrade is concerned, it's iffy at best because a lot of people have upgraded with no problems.
