Yes according to your description that is what you need. The difference is the leads are soft soldered to the battery and then the battery is wrapped in the coating. In reality it is the same battery but they have made it so that it plugs in instead of being a battery connection like the picture I sent earlier.

Ok..I'll check around for one. Any tips for getting that broken piece out? The white plastic a tend of the battery. The ends where you grasp to pull it it broke off, so I am unable to grasp it.

That you might have to use a pair of special tweezers called a IC Remover made for a computer that is used to take jumpers off the back of the old style HD's and cd drives. They will look like the picture below.

This should allow you to get those little prongs under the white piece and then gently pull it up maybe rocking it side to side. Be careful as you don't want to snap the connector itself.
