I think your on the right track here - Lets review some basics on Lithium-ion batts which might explain why you're having problems.

To start with check out this guide Apple has on batteries LiOn info Here's a little more on how to help keep them healthy Battery Maintenance.

Here's a little deeper article on LiOn batts Battery University - Charging lithium ion batteries.

The next thing here is having a good tool to monitor your battery. A good free tool is coconut which you can download here coconutBattery 2.8.

After cycling the battery, see how it goes and let us know if you still have issues with it.
