The unit was made October 10, 2006, if the battery has never been replaced, just replace the battery and the unit should be as good as new!

Also, yes you can still use the surge part, but i would recommend removing the battery, bad things tend to happen when you charge a bad battery for an extended period of time, if the unit chirps because its removed, just simply mute it.

Good Luck,
