OEM Batteries for the HTC Surround
This is a picture of it and even though it says that it is for HTC Desire HD, it works on the HTC Surround as well.
When I first saw it, the claim of it being a 1500mAh battery quickly evaporated. It pretty much looks exactly like the factory HTC battery.
After a week of usage, I am happy to report that a) it has not blow up in pieces, and b) my face has not been burnt off. However, I am sad to report that the battery life of this 1500mAh is really the same as the factory one.
So if you are looking for a cheap backup battery for your HTC Surround, just hit up eBay and you will find quite a number of them. Some eBay stores are selling 2 or 3 batteries with a external charge for around $15 with free shipping.
