The battery you have bought (as shown in your link) is not a Ni-MH battery, it's a Li-ion (Lithium-ion battery) same as the original battery that was supplied with the laptop when it was new.

You charge it up with your Dell laptop's mains-adaptor/mains charger just the same as before.

If they are not the same then you have to be careful. Some chargers can auto switch, Some have a manual switch and some can ONLY be used for the single type of battery.

Explosion and fire could result if not same chemistry.

Hang up and live.
