Angry Laptop Batteries

I bought a Laptop battery from ebay, 12 quid or so, reconditioned looked brand new and information from my thinkpad told me that it had an almost full brand new capacity.

Looked good for a battery that held a charge for more than an hour i though.... WRONG.... went from 90% charge, down to 1%.

The first 10% it held for 20 mins, and from then on it just died.

I am now on my forth battery, one of them did this to me as well, but i took the anger out on a hard service using the battery, so i could not fix it. The other two last for 1 hour, so im a bit peeved. ARGH.

Anybody else had this problem? Anybody else fixed this problem?

Yeah around here we fix battery's with quickly zapping them with 120volts.

Not recomended, as they can blow up.
