Need to replace a swollen batterySwitch Alpha 12 SA5-271

I think the full model number is "Acer Switch Alpha 12 SA5-271". I've had it for 2 years now and it's been great, except now the screen is literally bulging out of the case on the left side. You can see in the picture that there's quite a bit of space there, I'm extremely worried!
I'm assuming the problem is a swollen battery, so I need to know how to find a replacement. Acer support is completely useless, and will only transfer me to some third-party Indian call center I can't even understand, so I don't know what to do. I'm really worried the battery will explode and destroy the entire thing, I'm on disability and cannot afford to replace it!

    Hello,
    If you own an SA5-271, here are the part numbers of the original batteries:
    KT.00204.003 | BATTERY.POLY.4870MAH.MAIN
    KT.00204.005 | BATTERY.POLY.4870MAH.MAIN
    You'll find a reseller by googling with the part numbers.

    Thank you! Is there a difference between the two models you posted? I thought there were two variations of this device, the 271 and the 271P. I have the 271, so would it matter which battery model I got?
  • No differences between the two models of battery . The part numbers stated in my previous message are for SA5-271.

    The P model just had Windows Professional installed instead of Windows Home.
