The replacement laptop battery I just received is listed as 14.8v while the one I use is listed as 11.1v. Both are 5200mah. Can I use this new battery without harming my laptop?

I bought a generic laptop battery, the battery model number listed on the invoice is not what was shipped. Nonetheless, the supplier says my Gateway laptop can run on this battery: "Dear customer
dont worry both voltage 14.8v 14.4 11.1 and 10.8v battery is compatible with your laptop, we do sell many battery of this model already."
They also said:
"SQU-516 and SQU-413 is share the same part number, they are compatible, do you try it ? it should work for your computer, thanks"
Does this sound valid?
