Dell Precision 7710 Batteries - Do I have Lithium Polymer?

Hello all,

I just got in a new Precision 7710 system. I checked out the battery and it says 
91 Wh, Standard, Li-ion Battery, Type MFKVP". 

However, the order I played had Lithium Polymer selected:

"451-BBUV | 6 Cell (91 Whr) Long Life Cycle Lithium Polymer battery"

Was I given the wrong battery or is it incorrectly labeled?

No, you do not have the correct battery.

Unfortunately, Dell never made this battery or discontinued it before shipping (yet as of mid-April 2016 they are still offering it on new systems. Ugh.) The 91Whr Lithium-Ion battery (much cheaper) is their replacement equivalent.

You and I have been OVERCHARGED for a battery that they don't have. Call Dell and GET A REFUND.
