Ya Strung is right, follow those steps. And if you have Apple Care they will replace the battery for you, so if all else fails call 1-800-my-apple (1-800-692-7753) and tell them you tried the support article and that your battery is defective.

Hope that helps.

After one full year or 300 full cycles, Apple claims the battery as "consumed" even with Apple care and will not cover it under Apple care. Apple authorized repair shops can test if the cells are bad, or if its the battery connector cable, which is another component directly responsible for this kind of symptom. However, if you can call Apple, and see if they can make an exception.
