Title:

Killing batteries one after another

Text:

In the last 2 years my mbp has killed 4 batteries. I do not leave my computer plugged in all the time. I run the batteries down and recharge them just like Apple recommends. I get a "Service Battery" and/or a "Replace Battery". I've taken it to Apple and they have run diagnostics on mbp and everything comes up clean but the battery is completely dead. Note: Battery appears to charge fine. Any ideas?

Device:

MacBook Pro 15" Core 2 Duo Models A1226 and A1260
