XPS 9550 out of warranty but the battery is swelling.
As the title says, my XPS 9550 is out of warranty (I bought it 3 years ago) and the battery has started bulging (a known issue). I've read in a thread from a couple of years ago it was being fixed at Dell's expense despite not being under warranty; however, when I called customer support I was told if it is out of warranty I just have to buy a new battery.
Basically my question is as follows: If they're not going to replace a swelling battery caused by their negligence (which is what I've read it as being), is there some other place or a brand of battery I can buy to replace this one that is decent quality but not through Dell? I'd rather not pay $105 for a new battery from Dell that could do the same thing in a year or two due to their negligence, ya know?
