I googled the tech specs for your computer and found the same thing you did, 2 different battery model numbers. their both listed for this model computer so I would assume that either would work. BUT I'm not very experienced on the subject at hand so I would wait for more answers to be totally sure.

I think the voltage difference is just the amount of life it can hold, IIRC.
