IBM Thinkpad A22e Shutdown early on full battery

\015 I am running XP SP2 on my A22e Laptop,I have 2 batteries approx 12 months old both the batteries have been reconditioned ( discharged and charged 3 times) they are IBM batteries, when the power meter reaches approx 70% it all of a sudden drops to 5% and recommends connecting ac power or hibernates. I have removed the battery and checked it with a volt meter and it shows approx 11.70 volts. Using the battery maximiser program when I do connect the ac power pack it also shows battery at approx 12 volts but only shows 1% usage left as well as states battery charging. I have tried the latest bios update but problem is still there. I have checked the settings and set at no power shutdown at all of the monitor or HDD Any ideas thanks\015
