Default Battery seems to be dying

First the sound went in one ear - fixed that thanks to advice from this forum (Ta !) now all of a sudden my battery has gone in the space of one charge from getting 10 hours per full charge to getting less than 3. More like 2 and a little bit
This has literally been one charge 10 hrs, next a lot less than 3.
No slow decline.
The light goes out, saying its charged, when I start it up its not showing full, but 3 bars - then with less than an hours use, its showing ONE bar. Then after next use, its saying low battery

Seems to be a problem with Q5w and A2/3 battery's that are all of a sudden unable to hold a full charge and end up with 20% or so.

Yep, thats about the size of it.
