    Completely drain the battery, run the laptop on battery power untill it powers down, then charge the battery.

    a battery will degrade over time... sh*t happens

    but yeah your best bet would be to fully discharge the battery a couple of times with a solid recharge... and hopefully it will make it last longer for the mean time.

    You should try the full discharge and recharge as suggested and if that doesn't work, then re calibrate.

    Do not leave it at 98%, otherwise you will damage the battery because you are overcharging.
