Honestly I don't see the situation has improved becos exactly one month later, the "Increased Battery Discharge" popped up again. The first time was 8 months after I took delivery of the car and I didn't even take my car out on highways. I do drive about 15-20mins most of the time. Now I wander on the highways during weekends. I am just worried this is not enough since "Increase Battery Discharge" warning came back once last thursday.
If you're still receiving the warning even after driving it on the highways over the weekend then it's my opinion the battery needs to be replaced.
