Hello all. I am hoping that someone can confirm what I believe. I have a Macbook Pro that shuts down after about 5 minutes when on battery. Battery life has been decreasing but it has never been this short. I would normally get an hour out of it before it died but now I get no low battery warning or anything like that. It just dies. It just died and the battery said it was at 68% still. I'm thinking the battery is pooched and a new one is in order.

Some background.
It's about a year and half old.
I didn't purchase the extended applecare warranty.
Here's what iStat says:
38% health
68% battery
196 cycles

Suggestions or thoughts?
