using a bulged battery with the laptop

Inspiron 7591

Inspiron 7591

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

The swelling will eventually increase to the point where it destroys the system -- either physically deforming the case or to the point where the mainboard is damaged.

Since it's also a safety hazard (you risk a fire if the battery ruptures), get rid of the battery immediately.  The system will run just fine on AC only with the battery removed.

Order a battery when you have the funds:

Thank you for the reply. 

I'll continue to use the laptop on AC. 

Unfortunately I have the same issue again, the charger turns off as soon as I plug it in to the laptop. I had this issue, i got it fixed, brought it back home and within thirty minutes of usage, the issue started again. 

What would you recommend so that i wouldn't have to face the issue again?
