Default Jumpstarted my insight, it turned on but Car died later

So I was surprised yesterday as my insight didn't unlock. I jumpstarted the car since it seemed the battery was dead (only the interior cabin light turned on very dimly)

after jumpstart, I kept it connected to the jumper cables for 7 minutes then drove it for 45 minutes (longer than recommended to make sure the battery charged). I noticed the navigation screen in the center console never turned on and thought it was odd. The car however seemed to drive fine. Wasn't able to gauge the strength of the headlights but they seemed to work but not sure how strongly .
i parked the car and came back to it about an hour later and it was back to a dead battery and the car not being able to unlock.

Not sure when the battery was last changed. Could the battery just be at the level where it can't hold a charge? Was the dead navigation screen the kicker basically saying there's not enough juice left in the battery? I'm just hoping it's a simple battery problem and not a hybrid battery problem. Thanks
