    I used to get an alert when my battery was low, and I can't find an option to turn this back on (running Yosemite).

    Also, my MacBook shuts off at about 10%... shouldn't it last a little longer?

    I have the late 2008 unibody MacBook with a removable battery, which I replaced a couple years ago.

    My low battery alert pops up at 10%, maybe yours is just shutting off before the alert, in which case it looks like a battery calibration issue??

    Try calibrating your battery. The instructions are in the CALIBRATION section of the following link.

    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions, including tips for maximizing battery performance. If you haven’t already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.
