Thanks AVee. I will try to get an external battery charger or a spare
battery or borrow a nokia battery.

I found other thread which suggests some tricks as well (subj:"External
battery charger"). But the trick of holding AUX and inserting USB charger
doesn't work for me. That's probably because what the wiki says (
"Another complication is that some Freerunners are capable of starting up
without a battery while others are not (possibly due to different capacitor
values on the internal power rails)."

I will check with alternate battery option in nearby electronic stores.
