hero black 7 battery stuck

I have just opened my new hero black 7, and everytime I unplugged it from the first charge it would switch off (on around 50% charge). I then went to take the battery out to have a look, and the battery wont budge. It is well and truly stuck inside the camera (tried removing it once it was cool from charging) I dont want to risk damaging the camera as then they will say its my fault and I wont receive a refund/new product/ solution. It has been a real bad start to something i was so excited about.
