The battery fitted perfectly, to be honest I expected it would but as there are so many battery types it is always concern. It was exactly what I ordered, no shortcomings, perfect. The Dell Inspiron is an old machine and perhaps a bit hungry for power. This new 9 cell battery now gives me 2 1/2 hours of charge time which is perfect.
I am a very happy customer and I don't mind waiting when I know I will get exactly what I ordered.
The battery pack works OK but doesn't lock fully into my computer; since it's an after-market device it's about what I expected. BTW this will not fit a Dell 1750; it will fit but you can't open the screen. Shipping took almost 6 weeks!
