    Is this an urgent thing?
    Cos it says that if you have this warning you can still use it.
    thanks for the reply though battery

    Yeah, you can still use it, but you might run out of warranty coverage if you wait too long.

    Sounds like there's a hole in the battery. Some of the wattage is slowly leaking out. It's nothing urgent but try to keep it away from living creatures.

    Get it changed ASAP a battery that young shouldn't have degraded like that. If you continue to use it you risk it swelling

    thanks guys. just sent it to an apple service center.

    *heads up.
    I don't know if it's because of the battery issue but my HD had a problem after a few days of noticing the battery problem (can't startup). Reformatted the HD and the problem went away though.

    that is probably not related to the battery.
