Battery drain

Product Name: Elitebook Folio G1

Hi everyone about 4 months ago I bought a HP Elitebook Folio G1. Recently when I would use the computer it would get fairly hot. When it is plugged in, it gets really hot on the bottom. I feel this may have effected the battery, now from a full charge my computer will die in about an hour and half of use.  Is this a common problem, or is it most likely a deffect in the battery? Thanks
