Battery on Ibook - Mac Portable

My IBook is just about one-year old. I don't use it as my main computing source. I've probably used it fewer than 10 hours since I've had it. Since the day I bought it the battery life has been in question. After a full charge I never seemed to get more than two hourts of use. I don't have any periferrals other than a zip drive. In the past year the battery life seemed to get weaker and weaker. Finally, the battery will hold no charge at all now. I have to use the adapter or can't use this machine ...

    Default Battery on Ibook

    My IBook is just about one-year old. I don't use it as my main
    computing source. I've probably used it fewer than 10 hours since I've
    had it. Since the day I bought it the battery life has been in
    question. After a full charge I never seemed to get more than two
    hourts of use. I don't have any periferrals other than a zip drive. In
    the past year the battery life seemed to get weaker and weaker.
    Finally, the battery will hold no charge at all now. I have to use the
    adapter or can't use this machine at all. Apple techs told me to reset
    the Power Manager and I did with no change. They will probably replace
    the battery. Anyone else with similar problem?

    That should be Option-Command-O-F

    O.F. as in open Firmware.
