Battery Worn Out? Consider Replacing?

I use my battery a lot and I have this program which you are probably familiar with [BatteryBar v3.2.5] And I have a reading that says I have dramatically lost a lot of mWh's

As you can see the max is 47,520 mWh's And I have half Now as you can see the circle

Is this accurate? Or with heavy usage does this mean it fluctuates?

You can see the capacity Is 24,000 mWh Out of that 47,520 mWh's

You can try calibrating the battery. Fully charge it then leave it on until it runs down to the point of shutting down and recharges and see if you get better readins. IF not you should consider a new battery.

Batteries wear out with use. Thus it is normal for a battery to die.

I put my computer in safe mode, and I drained it until it died completely

Still low battery life. Oh Well, Nothing lasts forever.

Sorry it looks like your battery has given all it had.
After you get a new one remember to condition it every month or so.
