Can I use a Latitude battery in my Inspiron?

Jump to solution

I ran the battery down in my Inspiron 5720 while I was working away, and in desparation swapped it for the battery from my Latitude E6540 so I could continue working. To my surprise this works just fine. It charges normally and the laptop reports the battery percentages normally. Since the Latitude battery has a higher capacity than the Inspiron battery I get a longer battery life as well.

So my question is can I carry on using the Latitude battery or will it damage my Inspiron?

The Latitude battery model number is N3X1D while the original Inspiron battery is an 8858X. The batteries are physically identical.
