But they give you a link to go to some website to see if your battery needs to be replaced or not.
Because the warranty on the battery is about to expire, you can call Lenovo directly to have your battery replaced. They will require that you return the damaged battery in packing they will supply. The number to call is 1-800-426-7378.

I just tried this for my T400. I was at max 36% before and the same after, so I presume I need a new battery? :-(
