T410 - 4 months, battery almost dead

I purchased my T410 in May of this year.  It has the 6 cell battery (57Y4185).  Already after only 4 months the battery life is essentially useless.  I can barely get 45 mins to 1 hour out of it, even with the Power Manager set on Maxiumum Battery Life and the screen brightness turned way down.  The Power Manager shows the battery condition as "Poor" with a red icon.  It says "Your battery can store 51% of its original full charge capacity".

 

The battery seemed okay (at least 1.5 to 2 useable hours) up until a few weeks ago when performance suddenly plumetted.

 

Are there any known problems or recalls with the batteries on this laptop?  I'm unhappy at the prospect of spending $150+ for a replacement battery on such a new laptop.  I purchased warranty, are the batteries covered?

 

Thanks for any advice before I spent time phoning support.
