Rplcmnt Batt. for old Back-UPS-RS-900-series great. I'm a fan of the old Back-UPS-RS-900 (BR900), which has a replaceable battery. Usually, when the unit gives-out, it is a worn-out battery. So I was pleased to STILL be able to get the replacement battery for it, pricy, though it is, in comparison to the cost of the electronics.
Extending UPS life. I've replaced APC UPS batteries a number of times over the years, and the process has always been smooth and easy. While pricey, doing a battery swap is generally cheaper than going through the Trade-UPS program, so if you don't have the money, these battery packs are the way to go.
Great product, simple battery replacement. My APC UPS has worked perfectly for nearly 5 years. I got periodic notices from the excellent software: time to replace or upgrade. I considered an upgrade but as it was already perfect for my needs, it would be tough to improve, as I've just the right amount of coverage. The software is efficient and useful. The ordering of a replacement was mostly smooth. I couldn't find the exact model I have but a call to APC was actually quickly and efficiently handled by a human being - imagine! The unit came very quickly, and was as quick to replace as plugging in a 9-volt battery to a connector. Simple snap-in. Happy to recycle the old one. I had to write to find out how (no info came with it) but was immediately given a link to create a return prepaid shipping label. Sweet. No complaints, and imagine I won't be hearing much from the software (about replacement) for another few years!
Long Term Service. Although a small business operating from our home, we've used APC products for over 10 years. After using my first Back UPS R S 1000, for a year or so, I bought a second so I could put our entire home network. We don't have a lot of brown outs or complete loss of power, there have been occasions where they have occurred and the APC units have done their work admirably. We've just replaced the batteries in both units. The price was more than reasonable and the units were delivered in a few days including detailed instructions for installation. The real positive was that APC included a USPS prepaid return. Forever grateful and a proud and permanent user of APC products,
Worked for only a While. The order process and delivery were fine. I switched out the batteries easily. I found out that the UPS Call Tag to return the old battery required a fee unless I physically delivered the old battery to a UPS pick up point -- which I did. My biggest problem is that the APC BACKUPS after several weeks is now showing the original issue and I've had to disconnect it once again. I have only a minimal amount of equipment attached. Now I'm concerned that I will need to replace the entire unit and will have wasted the time and money spent on the replacement battery.
Very easy to purchase. APC is the best. I would definitely recommend this brand of UPS's. I would not recommend what I did, but, I did not replace my battery for 7 years. As long as it worked, I keep using it, however, after 7 years, it finally died. Then the replacement process was great, quick, and easy. The battery came quickly, was easy to replace and they even gave a shipping label to return the old battery. What could you ask for to make it better, nothing. I would recommend this company and battery over any other UPS company.
great replacement battery. My Back UPS RS 900 is back up and running quickly again, after the replace battery indicator lit, after several years. Easy to replace battery, as well as seal up old battery to ship off to be recycled again - easy as pie! This is what I have done for years when my back up APC units need to have their batteries replaced.
