    Cool, good luck let us know how it goes. If it works I may do the same for my 9550.

    There is no if, I had a 9550 and 9560 and swapped batteries to prove this months ago.

    Where is the best place to pick one up? I'm looking on eBay mostly overseas. Thanks.

    I got one from overseas as well... It seems to be the only place to buy one. I couldn't even get one from Dell directly when I called this week - it's an utter joke.

    I would use the lack of stock against Dell and tell them you will be going to small claims court to see if it will encourage them to replace it.

    Hi everyone

    I managed to buy the 97whr battery directly from Dell. Have had it installed for about 2 weeks and it works well.

    The bad news is that according to HWMonitor it already has 17% wear :( It started off at about 4% and has been declining slowly since.

    Any ideas? Should I try return it?

    Thanks

    Obviously you should demand an exchange :)

    This is assuming you followed advices on this forum to set the battery management to standard so it charges fully each time.
