OEM Batteries for the HTC Surround

One of the greatest things about eBay is that you can pretty find OEM batteries for your WP7 handset.  For you HTC Surround owners, battery life is sometimes an issue so I went and ordered a "so-called" 1500mAh battery off eBay for about $5.

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.
