Hi, I just purchased an ex-business x61 and the battery seems to be a bit dodgy. When i first booted up it said it was about 90% then suddent it was down to 8, then it died and started recharging, but incredibly slowly, like 1% every hour or something ridiculous.
I tried doing a battery gauge reset, but it's just taking so long to recharge i don't think it's really going to do anything. Even though it says there's about 20 minutes remaing to full charge...
Here's the battery information for power manager. http://i.imgur.com/9T5nuUR.png
I've read about some similar problems people have had but didn't find a definite answer.
I'm using a 65W UK charger btw. I know there are some differences between the 65 and 90 but it shouldn't be doing this surely?
So what I was wondering is just a battery issue that a new battery will solve or something more serious?

Ahh just checked the battery recall that they had. I have one of those batteries, previous owner musn't have bothered to do anything about it.
I've ordered a new battery so I'll see if that solves the issue when it comes.
