I have experience with lithium batteries, and most electronics like this have some sort of lithium battery in them. My hypothesis was that since this product has been discontinued for years they have been sitting on shelves for years while the batteries slowly drained. Lithium batteries cannot go below 3 volts. If they do they start to become damaged and will not charge anymore.
So I went to iFixit and followed their disassembly tutorial for these little cameras. And there it was. The lithium battery cells were puffed up, the clear sign of damage and too low of voltage. My multimeter read about 5 mV. Way too low.
But the camera worked fine. It just didn't have power. So I was able to purchase some nearly identical lithium cells on ebay and did the tedious process of removing the wires and control board from the old dead batteries and soldered them onto the new ones. And it fired right up! I am not recommending this process to anyone. Only telling you that it is possible to resurrect this camera if it is DOA. Lithium batteries can be dangerous if handled incorrectly.
I was so pleased with the other 2 that I really wanted another but now will look elsewhere.
UPDATE: Seems Polaroid wants to force me to return this defective item on my own dime and Amazon doesn't seem like they want to handle this and just send me a return label. I'm not used to this treatment from Amazon and am disappointed.
I have owned a Go-Pro Hero 3, Contour Roam 2, Garmin Virb, and Garmin Virb XE and I have found this to be one of my "go-to" cameras.
If even I fear that any of my more expensive action cams are in some sort of mortal danger, out comes this little guy, because well, for the price, it is fairly disposable. Filming within a few millimeters next to a metal cutting saw? No problem. Setting up a shot inside a wheel well within an inch of a moving tire? No problem. I suppose that the Go-Pro Hero Session can do the same thing, but I won't be out $200-$300 if something bad did happen in a high-risk shot.
The footage is OK. About the same as Hero 2 or Roam 2. Not cutting edge by today's standard, but if you are need that 5-10 second footage maybe a couple times in a 5 minute clip, then it doesn't really matter anyway.
I really found the magnet useful in setting up shots, especially on how-to videos and can be used to get angles without having to use a mount. It's not for movie documentaries, so adjust your expectations accordingly. One of the companies here sell a case/adapter that allows you to use it with Go-Pro style adapters, which makes it even more versatile.
P.S. Don't be fooled by the one that looks like this on wish. My boyfriend ordered one and was sorely disappointed. It is not just an off brand, it's tiny and terrible. Make sure you get this from Polaroid and no one else, even if it looks the same it's not.

However, all of this is rather moot given that it was fine for the first couple of weeks usage, and then started to stop itself recording after arbitrary periods (2mins-30mins) without being touched - rather unhelpful when it is on a helmet and you're on a 40 minute ride - you can't always hear that it has stopped and it is very frustrating to discover that it wasn't recording when you needed it to be. About three weeks later though it has stopped responding to the single button on the device - the one that turns it on/off/starts/stops/etc. Whilst it comes alive when plugged into a computer confirming that it can access the memory card in it, it doesn't work at all aside from that, rendering it useless.
Attempting to return/replace, but Amazon are not making this easy.
You'll need to buy a micro-SD card separately. Make sure it is properly formatted before you insert it.
I would recommend getting this strap-on set [https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01ESX15U8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1]. It works very well for attaching the camera to a bike helmet.
When you first plug it into your PC/laptop a menu pops up saying how do you want to access the data. Select in windows explorer. If you select ‘do nothing’ it’s a whole world of pain to get access to the SD card back again.
