Not normal behaviour. It is consistent with a battery that has reached the
end of its usable/reliable life _or_ a battery that has unbalanced cells.

Note that this happens on almost every battery-powered device, not only
XOs, when batteries get old or their cells unbalanced.

IIRC wiki has instructions on how to try to rebalance batteries.
