MacBook Pro 2021 refurbished battery is very old?

I recently bought a refurbished MacBook Pro 2021 14", and coconutBattery has the battery as being manufactured in early 2017 - is that likely to be a problem? Is it worth thinking about a replacement?

Edit: The battery is also consistently charging at a low wattage (around 24W at most) despite being plugged in with a 100W brick from Anker.

Sounds like someone did a half repair as the orginal battery failed from the over charging it was getting from the logic boards SMC logic which wasn’t fixed. If you bought this system from Apple I would get therm to repair it r just reverb it as this will requir deeper logic board repair skills.
