Exclamation Flipout battery compatibility problem!

Hey everybody.

I'm new to android and motorola, and though I know a fair bit about computers, I know next to nothing about phones. So I thought somebody here might help me.

Basically, I've owned a motorola flipout for about a month and a half now (it's great, but a bit screwed up, but thats not what I'm talking about atm). Last night I ran home and it dropped out my pocket, the battery connecting thingymajigg died, I took it into a shop, and now I apparently need a new battery (the guy in the shop replaced it with another battery, but I didnt see the type, and it worked fine). Through several hours of searching, apparently there are two batterys of the type 'BT60' that I see on the front of my battery case.

The first one is this:

.. with the Motorola M on the bottom right

The second one is this:
http://assets1.androidcentral.com/images/product_images/accessories/additional_images/7671/large/1.jpg
... with the small Motorola M on the top right and more writing along with a CE and other funky stuff.

The second one is the one I originally got with my Motorola Flipout. Most sites I normally buy from (amazon.co.uk, basically) only stock the first; but the internet has conflicting ideas on which one is compatible with the Flipout. A few sites (Motorola Standard Battery BT60 for Flipside, Flipout - Android Batteries - Android Community Store) tell me that the second one is specifically built for the Flipout (one also said for the Flipside). The first one costs about 7 on amazon, the second one costs about 30.

So I really would like to know if I can use the first one on my phone or if I need to shell out more money. The only place in the UK I can find that stocks the 2nd battery is http://www.mobilephonecrazy.com/modeldetail/Flipout,Genuine_Manufacturer's_Original_Battery.ht m; but even then I don't know if its the right one as it doesn't have a picture.

Any help would be really really really really appreciated.
Thanks all!
