Looks like the battery issue has been beaten to death. I would never tip a battery on it's side to remove it. Mine pulled straight up with no issues.
Bluebee's post was too long for me to sit thru, was the charger voltage ever read?
Turning the key on seems like it might have been what killed things. I always charge the battery while it is connected, never had a problem.
