Hi JAYESH GHARAT,

The 502x supports both 6cell and 9cell batteries. Kindly find the specifications here - http://dell.to/2iVELAQ- see page# 98.

The 502x is considered obsolete and I am not sure if the batteries are available with Dell any longer. 

You could contact our team to get a quote for a battery if available - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ

You could alternatively order the parts here - http://bit.ly/2jgRfQ6 or through other 3rd party online stores or local stores.

Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

Let us know if you have any other queries.

Thanks and Regards,

A battery with a two- to three-year old manufacture data won't give you maximum runtime or lifespan.  Lithium cells suffer from age as much as from use.

There are 9-cell batteries for this model.  Bear in mind they're larger than 6-cell and will extend beyond the notebook's casing whereas the 6-cell batteries fit entirely inside the system.
