Battery problem

So I have this Acer Travelmate and I'm having a huge problem with it. Back then it dies when it reaches 50%. Without any warning. And after a few months it went up into 60% and just earlier this week, it constantly dies at 70%. I'm not able to use it for a long while and the thing is it charges fast (assuming that because it still has a lot of battery charge but it just dies). I'm not using this on a daily basis so I have not abused this or whatsoever. Can you guys help me?

    Hi Akuseru28,
    Please try the battery caliber ration to check if that fixes the issue.
    1. Power off your laptop and allow it to charge at least 8 hours , while it is powered off (not sleeping/hibernating).
    2. Unplug its power adapter, then power on your laptop and use your laptop battery until it depletes its battery.
    3. Fully charge your laptop again in order to re calibrate the charging sensor.
    Please let me know if this fixes the issue
