Symptoms:
-The battery would tell me it had a full charge, and then it would tell me that it was dead.
-It would run on battery power for about 30 seconds

Cure:
-Apple ordered me a replacement . The replacement took 2.5 weeks to arrive.


Just a tip to those that expect new batteries, it seems they aren't easy to aquire in retail stores.

That's a horrible amount of time to wait for something as simple as a battery. At least you had the x41 to use though.
