And physics asks how to get an odd number of cylindrical cells into a battery of that size and shape without it being noticably lopsided.
Don't consider this gospel as I can find no documentation about it, but it seems not all Mini 9 batteries are compatible with all Vostro A90 batteries, especially if they were bought at different times. There are differing capacities (in WHr, not in cells) and part numbers depending on the purchase date.

Mini 9 battery is four cells.
You may be able to get the other battery to charge by starting with the Dell battery installed, powering on, then swapping in the non-Dell battery.

Mini 9 / a90 = 4 cell battery
Mini 10v = 3 or 6 cell battery
