using a bulged battery with the laptop
I have a Dell Inspiron 7591 with a three-cell 56Wh battery. I recently had an issue where as soon as I connected my charger to the laptop, the indicator on the charger would go off resulting in my laptop not getting charged. I got that issue fixed.
With this, I have also had an issue with my battery. Two of the cells on the battery seem to have bulged. I can't afford a new battery right now, and when I looked at the store on the site, I couldn't even find the battery. Even the executive mentioned that the battery is not available right now.
He suggested that I should not have my battery plugged into my laptop as it might cause further problems, so he removed the battery and gave it to me. It used to have a twenty-minute backup, but now I have nothing. I'll always have to have my charger plugged in for my laptop to work, and in cases of a power cut, the laptop shuts down instantly as there is no power source.
Now my question is how worse can things get if I keep using this battery until I find a replacement to this?
here are a few pictures of how the battery looks
