Default mini 9 PP39S standard battery replacement. - 10-07-2009, 06:29 PM

Hi I bought a replacement batttery on ebay for my mini 9 model number PP39S but unfortunately it wont charge. The battery is a non dell chinese replica.

What is the exact battery I need? All I want is to replace the standard battery and have it charge when I plug it in.

I searched for an email link on the dell site to contact them directly on their site but it seems the service tag is not supported via email. I found this, do you think it would be compatible:

DELL Battery : Primary 4-cell 32W/HR LI-ION (Kit) : Laptop Accessories | Dell Ireland

thanks for any info,

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that you can PROBABLY trust a battery sold by the ACTUAL company and listed for your specific product model.

Because if you CAN'T, we're all in big, big trouble.

Much Kudos to Dell here for their solution.

Turns out this second hand machine was still under warranty which they honored no questions asked. Didnt even have to call - online support chat looked after everything. A repair technician was sent out to the house the following day with a new battery. That at least was compatible but it was still not charging it. So he came back the next day with a new motherboard. That totally sorted it.

Nice one Dell wasnt expecting that.
