    Well 26% health means that the battery can only hold about 1/4 of its original capacity. How long have you had the battery?

    ...And have you calibrated the battery? ...Try doing that a few times and see if it makes a difference.

    How long does the battery last when you're using it?

    That doesn't matter quite so much....

    OP: Call Apple and tell them about this, they should replace the battery. With a health that low, and less than 300 cycles, you would be due for a new one.

    How much uptime are you getting with your battery? It might just need calibration to provide the current health status, if you are getting a decent uptime.
