I'm often asked where to get accessories for HTC Smartphones (like the Orange SPV or SPV 100/PPCW.Net i-Mate) from and here is a list or resources I can definitely recommend as they have more or less everything you need for your Smartphones.
From batteries to chargers to sync solutions as well as car kits or keyboards:

Original Accessories and More
The best source to get all kind of original accessories for your HTC Smartphones is ORA UK.
Right now, ORA hasn't added accessories for the HTC Tanager (which they will call Orange SPV100) but already accessories for the SPV available which also work with the Tanager. However, but during the next days they promised me, they will update their site. Then you will be able to get additional batteries. However, their cables, chargers and keyboards for the Canary already work fine with the Tanager:

Executive SPV Leather Case - £19.99

High quality leather case for your SPV.
Also suitable for e100

SPV Fabric Keyboard - £49.98

Adds full QWERTY keyboard to your SPV and folds neatly when not in use. ROM Update must be downloaded to your handset to use this product.

Please note that you need an Orange Smartphone to get it working or the PPCW.Net i-Mate! :-) Download the driver for your PPCW.Net i-Mate here and see my review here.

SPV Original Car Kit - £99.99

This full professional car kit for the SPV provides excellent sound quality, and will charge the device at the same time. Requires professional installation.
Please note that this kit does not support a radio mute facility.
See my review here.

SPV Simple Car Kit - £39.99

Powered by your cigar lighter socket, the ORA Safe2talk can be fitted in seconds. Simplicity and safety, combined with excellent sound quality make the ORA Safe2talk the ideal solution to your in car handsfree needs.

Sync and Charge
In case you are looking for an additional charger for your Smartphone 2002 or an additional USB cable I can suggest BoxWave's miniSync (see my review here) which combines both.

It can be also used with BoxWave Car Charger for miniSync. In case you want to support PPCW.Net you might want to order it through this affiliate link here.

If you want to safe some money and you are looking for some basic cable solutions only I can recommend the accessories from Moonlight Technologies. The following items they offer for the O2 xda/T-Mobile Phone Edition also works with your HTC Smartphones:

  • O2 XDA / T-Mobile Hotsync & Charging Cable
  • O2 XDA / T-Mobile Pocket PC Car Charger
  • O2 XDA / T-Mobile Pocket PC Travel Charger
  • O2 XDA / T-Mobile Serial HotSync Cable
  • O2 XDA T-Mobile USB 3 Piece Charge/Sync Kit

You can order the Moonlight Technologies cables via this affiliate link here by selecting "PDA Accessories" -> " T-Mobile / XDA" on the left.

Both - BoxWave and Moonlight Technologies - offer great accessories for other PDAs like Pocket PC Phone Editions also so it's worth to check them out anyway!

With all the accessories above, you should be ready to get everything out of your Windows Powered HTC Smartphone. Enjoy your new wireless freedom!
