Less battery life after dropping

About 6 months ago, my computer fell from the hook on a door to the ground. Although it was in a case and a backpack, the top left corner of the inner panel separated a little from the outer cover panel and the metal panel that is inside there also got a little warped. Everything has worked fine, but the battery life since then has sucked. Sometimes it seems to charge slower than it should, but mostly there is just less battery life than there used to be. I'm wondering if this is perhaps because the charger is in the same area as where I dropped it, or if the battery is just old, or maybe something else. I don't know what to fix.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Sounds like you have a bad/damaged battery, if you have a spare, you can swap that in to test, but I'm fairly sure it's not the AC adapter as that would not affect life, and not the DC-in component as although that would account for slow charging, it would not account for low life. Replace your battery, I'm not a battery technician, but some of the cells may have been breached. You can get a replacement here.

I agree the only answer that makes sense is the above, it is very unlikely that this issue could be caused by anything but the battery.
