Hi all. The battery on Latitude E5430 (model number T54FJ) is dead, but I have another battery, which is less in capacity (model number 8858x), but still, should be the same in size and the connectors seem to be in the proper place. Can I replace it with one? Is it safe?

P.S. I'm sure it's in the proper forum category, but if it's not, I'm sorry.

I just now installed it in a different laptop, and it was not charged, but it's charging, and it seems to be working. I'm still going to give it a more thorough test, but... are you saying that it's not a good idea to use the different battery? Why so?

The other laptop will be connected to the power outlet most of the time, if not all the time. So I don't care about that laptop as much. Thanks.

The battery fits in just fine, the connectors are connected, both are 11.1V, no info about amperes on both, so I think they are fine.

If for some reason it's best to use the stock battery, what is that reason then?

Thanks for the replies
