    My laptop battery maximum capacity has decreased from 1.5 hours to 20 minutes recently, however Im not quite sure if its the battery that has deteriorated or if the problem lies within my laptop itself

    If it's a MacBook, you can use coconutBattery to test its health. It uses the technology built into Apple laptops to display very accurate information about battery health.

    If you're using a Windows laptop of some kind, you can try BatteryCare. I have no personal experience with it, but hope it helps.
