Laptop battery issues

Hi all,

I am having a few issues with an acer aspire 3610 battery.
The battery does not charge (even though it shows as charging in the power management screen).

Does this sound like a duff battery?

How old is it? If more than a few years (depending on how it's been used) it's probably had it. Does it die quickly after you remove the charging lead?

The laptop os probably 4/5 years old now - used as my daughters laptop to go on the disney website.

The laptop shuts down as soon as the power lead is removed/plug turned off.

I would probably get the battery changed and or borrow a similar battery to see if it charges
