Got the battery from an on line site. Replaces model op-570-76620-01 Quickset says it can't determine the model# and to buy a Dell battery. It came fully charged and I used it for a few hours just on battery power, so it was good out of the box as far as capacity goes. Anyway, they say they'll refund my money, so all I'm out is the return shipping. Bummer though. I think I'll just buy a Gateway instead of giving Dell big bucks for a battery. I don't understand why their pricing themselves out of the market.
