The battery is probably dying - it happens all the time.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

It is entirely possible if you have left your battery in your machine and used the AC adapter primarily, that your battery now has a 'memory charge'. Meaning that it only retains a partial charge and cannot do a full charge/discharge cycle.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)
