Why isn't my battery charging sufficiently?

The laptop seems to die much quicker than expected. Despite the specified amount of time that the laptop's battery is supposed to last, it dies quickly before that.

A possible answer is that the either the battery or adapter is faulty. Check to make sure that the AC power adapter is plugged into the DC-in jack on the left side of the laptop. If it is plugged in to the laptop, make sure that the light on the adapter is on (there should be either a red or green light showing) and that the adapter is plugged into the wall outlet. If the light is on and the adapter is plugged in to both the laptop and the power outlet but there is still either no power or the laptop does not show that it is charging, then the battery at the back of the laptop is faulty. However, if the adapter light is not on, then the adapter is faulty.

How old is the laptop? Depending on how often you use the laptop the wear and tear is different on the batteries, but over time they loose capacity and you would have to replace them sometime. Sometimes it is possible to find companies specialized in exchanging the battery cells and not the whole battery which can be cheaper. If you bought your laptop between 2010-2012 I would say the batteries are rather old and needs to be replaced if you need the same work time out of them as when they where new.

Sounds like the battery is at the end of its life and simply needs to be replaced with a new one.
