My HP laptop battery behaved the same way, and now doesn't work at all. 1 wk after the 1yr warranty expired, it did the same.
These companies are not stupid are they. Design a battery to last just over the warranty period. GRRRR.
Makes me so mad.

Same situation here. When I first purchased my Toshiba laptop in 2004, the battery life was about an hour (even though the specs claimed 2hours). About a month after, battery life dwindled to less than a few minutes! If I want take my PC to another room/location without powering off, I literally have move fast in order to prevent the machine from shutting off due to low battery...and the first thing I do when I get to the other room is plug-in the stupid battery. This was too much of a hassle for me. Without adequate battery life and the functional portability it offers, my laptop has become my desktop...it sits on my desk and remains plugged in at all times. Since the problem started, I have been too cheap to buy another battery. The battery currently in use is the same one that came with the PC when I purchased it in 2004.
Now, when I take the laptop out for smoking, the battery is dead after I finish half of the cigarrete.
A smoke break should be just that...a break from your immediate task. Whatever it is that youre doing on your laptop, can it wait until after youre done with a cigarette?
Do you smoke American Spirits? Those cigarettes are like little bricks, densely rolled, and burn forever...unlike Marlboros, gone after 3-4 drags.
Perhaps this is just your laptop's way of telling you that the cigarette smoke is harmful and taking away from its battery life. Have you ever tried smoking some weed with your laptop to see how it behaves?..a nice joint or a couple of lovely bong loads...you might be surprised...
do all the battery behave like this?
Definitely not....they only behave like this with smokers.
Some info you might find helpful:
Nowadays most laptops have a battery life of about 4 hours. Old ones bought in the 2000~2004 last about 2 hours. If you don't use your laptop batteries for 1 month or longer, you should remove them from your notebook, stored it in a cool and dry place away from heat, metal objects and direct sunlight, but not in the refrigerator. It is strongly advised for laptop batteries not be left in storage for over three months without any use. A charged laptop battery will eventually lose all of its charge if unused.
Do not let the battery run down until dead. This shortens the life of the battery, especially car batteries. For some lithium batteries, such as for laptop PCs, its actually good for the battery if constantly charged.
How long to charge laptop battery?
A: You can keep it plugged in charging forever without any long-term negative effects on your laptop or battery.
