    Try to go on Ebay, Amazon, or online retailer depending from where you live. Your battery model is AC14B8K.

    Battery in laptop is AC14B3K and when i was looking online i found same model number but capacity and voltage was different.
    That there i got confused, is it ok to use AC14B8K?

    Thanks

    This is battery i found online, same model number but on the left says 15.2v 3270mAh but on the right 15.4v 3180mA. 
    Its hard to find genuine Acer batteries.
    Also, i know its out if warranty but shouldn't Acer replace swollen batteries for free?

    Those 2 models are almost the same. But I think you should stay with ac14b3k one. It has a bit different in capacity rating but it should work.
    They only do free replacement if the laptop is still warranty or that model has a recall.
