Is it OK to use a higher powered battery in a laptop?

 

In my Proboob 6560b, this battery closely matches the one I currently have (and want to replace):

But this one is also supposed to be for the same computer, but has a higher voltage:

The voltage difference between those two batteries does not make a difference (10.8 vs 11.1). One is a 9 cell and the other is a 6 cell. The larger capacity batteries project out of the case in order to accommodate the extra cells.

I have a 9 cell on one of mine, it has a slight added benefit.  It reduced temperatures by about 5 degrees, reason the LT now sits about 3/4" up from what ever surface it is on.  The real kicker is it went from 3 hours to nearly 9 hours (great on long flights) before needing a charge, if you don't mind a little extra weight and bulk they are the hot ticket.
