    I believe that's pretty much the nature of laptop batteries. I had to get a third party battery to replace mine after 2.5 years because it would only hold a charge for like 45 minutes or something crazy like that. :dunno:

    you have to calibrate it every so often for it to keep its life...you can't just do it once and expect it to have 100% orgiinal life again. :rofl:
