The amount of time i can use my laptop without ac power is getting really short. After about 10 mins off power, a message appears saying your batter power is getting very low. I used to be able to use my laptop without mains power for about an hour before having to plug it in. As a newbie silver surfer, can someone please advise or help me ?

Sounds like the battery is about to give up the ghost and needs replacing, what model Laptop and how old is it ?

It's a 2-year old Toshiba Satellite Pro.

Look for a replacement battery on eBay but don't buy the cheapest one or if possible one tjhat has to be sent from China (No warranty despite what they say)

They're available on Amazon for about £13 to £24 depending on the exact model.
