My comment on this message is typically this:
All rechargeable batteries have a limited life span. It varies from battery to battery, but a battery typically loses 25% of its life per year (so a 2 year old battery lasts half as long as it did when it was new).
While it’s typical for a battery to last less long, it’s not so much of a problem unless the battery life no longer meets your needs. If you say the word, I’ll begin the process of requesting a new battery on your behalf.---
I found this elegant way to remove the warning which seems to work on all E series Dell Latitude laptops.
In short, download and install the Dell Feature Enhancement pack:
