Battery not working properly

Hi all,

This question applies to all brands of DSLR batteries. In this case I have a problem with the LP-E6 battery from Canon. I bought a 5D mark III in the US last year but I live in Europe so I always charged the battery using a wall plug converter. I am on a road trip through California and I noticed that my battery wouldn’t even last a day of shooting. In fact after a week, I would even see that a fully charged battery would only have 90% juice after 9 clicks... How would my battery already not work properly after a year of use? Is it because I charged it in a country with different voltage? Please any help would be appreciated!
