    Hey everyone, I've been using my Asus G55VW for just over a year now. It's been having a maximum of 3 hours of battery life since I got it. Once, about 4 months ago, the battery life dropped and it shut down completely at 30% battery left with no warning at all. I fixed that issue by creating a battery calibration power option and it worked and I got the battery back to normal.

    About a week ago, I turned on the laptop the laptop and noticed I had 1 hour and 30min battery life at 97%. I did fully charge it the night before and pulled out the adapter. So i get only 1.5 hours battery life now and it used to still function like normal and gave me battery low warnings. A few days ago, it stopped giving me warnings all-together and shuts down at 15%.

    I tried calibrating but it the method I used before did not work. Is it possible the battery is on it's last legs?

    Yes, I suspect the battery is at fault

    Battery life is quite poor, if they are kept plugged in and at 100% charging can shorten life - often now you have power management that does not re-charge batteries to 100%
