9 cell battery performance on Thinkpad T410

I have just bought new ThinkPad T410 with 9 Cell Lithium-Ion
Power 94 Watts/55++. This battery is advivertised to run for 18 hours, but to my laptop it runs for about 6 hours on a single charge for normal use. what is wrong with my loptop because it has failed to meet my expectationns of all day Computing on a single charge. 
this laptop is has 4gb of ram and windows 7 professional 64 bits and is about one week since I bought it. any advice to increase battery performance
