    The existing batter will no longer charge. It is a Li-ion PA3191U-5BRS - 10.8V 4700 mAh. I have an almost new replacement battery for my earlier Portege with idenitcal fittings but with 10.8V 4600mAh. It is not a Toshiba model and states that it is to replace PA3176U-2BRS. Can I use it in my M700 without risk of damage or reduced performance?

    Hello

    To be honest I doubt that it will work because the specifications are different.
    In your case I wouldn’t try it, in worst case you destroy the computer.

    It would be better if you buy a new battery with the exact specifications. Authorized service provider in your country can make you an offer for this.
