Post Training a new battery can extend its life
In my experience, the life expectancy of laptop batteries tends to be about two or three years. After that, it is not uncommon to see the battery lose its ability to charge fully or even report that it is fully charged and then lose the charge in minutes. And the behavior in which the laptop just shuts down, even though it shows it still has 30 minutes of charge left, also is common with a failing battery.

Laptop batteries are usually not covered by the manufacturer's warranty, so you are looking at purchasing a replacement. While it is too late for this battery, there are steps you can take to get the most life out of any new batteries you acquire and you will own a long life laptop battery.

Whenever I get a new portable device like a phone or a laptop, I "train" my battery, by plugging the new device into a wall socket and charging the battery completely. I then let the battery run down completely, charge it again, and drain it one more time. I have found that this process will make the battery hold a charge longer than a battery that has not been "trained." For my Android phone I have two batteries - one I trained and one I didn't. The trained battery will hold its charge for up to 30 percent longer than the untrained battery.
