I have an old laptop (Packard Bell C3300) with an almost dead battery. The battery marking PC-VP-WP59/OP-570-76702.
Dismantled — 8 items SANYO, googled, looked at the eBay prices — it's cheaper to get a new battery.
I found out that this laptop battery fit Dell Inspiron 1200/2200. They, like Packard Bell used battery Ni-MH 9.6 V, and the eBay sellers sell Li-Ion 14.8 V, and write that they are compatible.
Question: is it true? The difference of 5 volts is no joke. Can there be problems with the charger? Can any battery of the laptop is to kill?
