    I have an older laptop (circa 1999-2000) that I use occassionally. The
    battery, however, drains really fast. Say, less than an hour of light
    use (no re-boots, etc.). Anyone know what this about? Should I just
    replace the battery?

  2. Look for a little piece of software called 'mobile meter'. It's free and
    you can test the capacity of your battery with it.

    The expected lifetime of a Lithium ion battery is about three years,
    plus or minus, due to the design of the battery. Your battery is
    advancing along the expected life curve.

    degrade? Thanks.
