Hi All,

The Past few days I can't seem to get more than 20 minutes of use out of my MacBook Pro with the Battery being fully charged it just shuts down. - No issues while plug in power, but the second i unplug it, this starts to happen...

Any quick Ideas, I have this for sale on eBay and the auction ends in 13hrs. lol- it must not want me to sell it.

There are known issues with some of the MBP batteries. Apple will replace it for free.

As far as the eBay auction goes, the buyer will definitely think he/she got ripped off when they realize that the battery only lasts 20 minutes. I'd pull the auction and contact Apple for the replacement battery.

Could i just run into an Apple Store and have them give me a new battery there?

Yeah, that sounds like you got a bad battery. Apple should be able to replace that at the store.
