Laptop Battery Doesn't Last 8 Hours Anymore

Hi I have a Dell M140. The battery used to last over 8 hours but now it seems to die in less than an hour. And I really need it for travel purposes.

Is there any way to repair this?

I think it's a 9-cell battery, and it's properties say:

Chemistry: LION

Battery Name: Dell FC1416

Manufacturer: SMP SD12.4
