I got my laptop back from the tech guys today.

They told me they might not be able to change the battery due to it not being covered. When it went into repair the battery wasn't working at all. Now it works but its been charging hours and has only charged 20%.

Have they done something to get a bit of life out my old battery, or is it likely they have replaced it with a dodgy one?

Most Warranties only cover Batteries for a very limited period only. Your Cover will be for the Hardware only.

You'll need to purchase a new battery ~ usually horrendously expensive, but make sure you get the correct one.
