Battery 10 min (40% remaining), 16 min (60%), it is weird. I'd say nothing if I had 15% but 40% and only 10 min, it's too little. All the time I just sit with this cord and never bring the laptop to the lessons, just because the battery life doesn't seem to last quite enough:(
I definitely have problems with the battery, don't I?

I'm afraid that's probably just a natural degradation, everything wears out at some point and laptop batteries are no exception. Though they are rechargable, after a number of charge/discharge cycles they change chemically and start to lose their ability to hold charge.

It may be possible to perform a process known as calibrating the battery to restore it to some extent, particularly if the problem is actually associated with the energy meter on the battery. However this only works for certain kinds of battery.

The alternative is that you will have to buy a new battery for your laptop.

Alright, I'll try to find some. The fact is that the laptop had to be used with the American plug. And I used an adapter or a different cord, maybe this also counted.
I just wish the battery will be enough for at least next few months.
Thanks.
