Well, I'd say that either the battery is bad (which is likely), or your
thinkpad is broken, or you have some sort of bad connection between the
battery and the thinkpad.

You'd need to take it to the repair shop to know for sure (or test it with
another battery, etc).

You seem to have found one.  Still, any battery that acts funny should be
replaced, these things are fire hazards.

Buy batteries on reputable places, *only*.
