We've got laptop batteries in the office which are permanently plugged in. If they are unplugged and used off mains, they last about 5 minutes - in fact, some of them report error messages and won't boot due to lack of power.

Best action for you now is to fully discharge / fully charge cycle for about a week. If there's no improvement, you'll have to assess whether the cost of a new battery is worth it - will you ever actually use it standalone . . . ?:

You should run the Laptop on Battery until it closed down, do this four times to refresh the battery. Also Battery is best charged with the Laptop off, charge until light goes out
