I'm pretty sure that the batteries are part of a sealed unit with the PCB on this model, and after checking the Service Diagram I'm even more convinced.
I would suggest fully charging and discharging (leaving it running without the foil and cutter on) a number of times to see if you can improve the performance, as there may be a memory effect on the battey. The model is only 5 years old so your batteries should have a little more life.
It is a mains/rechargeable shaver though, so you "should" still be able to use it with the lead plugged directly into the shaver. So the shaver may not be a dead loss! :)

Your batteries are no longer capable of being recharged and need to be replaced.
If you are handy and can dissemble and solder, you can do this yourself, otherwise, you can send it off to a repair service that will do this for you.
If you wish to do this yourself, you'll have to take the shaver apart. There are two (2) small plastic caps on the bottom of the shaver that can be removed with a small pick or flatbladed screwdriver. Once those are out, you can unscrew the two screws that hold the shaver together and gently pry off the side panels.
This will expose the internal circuit board and the rechargable batteries that need to be unsolded. You can then reinstall NEW rechargable batteries and solder them onto the PCB (printed circuit board). You can also purchase a complete internal PCB with the batteries and everything you need, you just swap out the electronics for the new one, although this costs about $39, while the batteries alone are much less.
Put the shell together and reinstall the retaining screws and caps and you're done.
Here's a link to get the replacement batteries for your shaver. They also do the repair service, if you don't want to do it yourself.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
