I have an HP battery that needs replacing, but HP itself doesn't sell it anymore.

Its 3-cell lithium-Ion (Li-Ion), 2.8Ah, 31Wh, 11.1V battery but when I search the battery part #, some sellers on ebay and amazon are selling batteries with the same specs but they list other HP laptop models as compatible but not my laptop (even though it looks like a match from the pic), meanwhile the ones that confirm their battery matches my laptop model are all 4-cell, 33Wh, 2.2Ah, 14.8V, which also looks to be a match.

Which would be the safer bet to buy?

Thank you so much!
