I just plugged my charger in after letting my battery run down a little bit but when I plugged it in, it now says in the bottom right that I should 'consider replacing my battery'. I downloaded BatteryCare to take a look at it and this is the results I got.

Model: ASUSTEK F82--22
Designed Capacity: 46,200 mWh
Total Capacity: 13,486
Current Capacity: 13,519
Charge/discharge rate: +7.8 W
Tension: 12,525 mV
Wear Level: 65.60%

This is all foreign to me so hopefully this is enough info to help out, thanks in advance.

Means what it says. Your battery may now only hold 35% of its original charge. Which basically means if it had enough juice in the battery to run a laptop for 100 minutes previously, it's now only got enough juice to run it for 35 minutes. It usually means the battery is beginning to show signs of wear as a normal part of the way they charge and discharge during normal operation. Eventually it will simply stop holding any charge at all.

Thanks, I wasn't sure what it exactly meant. It's weird though, my battery was working fine last time I tried and going for two hours but I just unplugged it and after 15 minutes, it was down to 59%.
