This is becoming tiresome…

Dell sent me a new battery, to replace the faulty one. Yay! Thanks, Dell.

Unfortunately, the newer battery did not work either – it was not detected by my system. Sigh :facepalm:

I’m beginning to get tired of this…

Fortunately, I know that the computer runs off another battery. What I don’t know is whether the new new battery works in another machine, and whether my machine will charge a known good battery. Hopefully I’ll be able to figure it all out…

Interestingly, the controller board in this battery seems quite a bit better than the one on the original new battery. At least it’s reporting specs that line up with the packaging… and not reporting completely crazy and plain wrong information!
