Battery backups or UPS, uninterrupted power source, protect our computers and data from surges, blackouts, brownouts and power spikes. Keeping the UPS operable is the SLA battery, which has a lifespan of 3-5 years.
Replacing the battery is easy, there are 2 simple methods:
- Bring the UPS to our showroom and we’ll replace it for you.
- Bring the old battery in and we’ll sell you a new one. Here’s how:
- Use a Philips screwdriver to remove the back of the UPS
- Unplug the positive and negative cables from the battery.
When to Replace
The UPS has notifications indicators on when to replace the battery. Most units will have an audible notification, beeping noise, to indicate the battery is below specifications to protect the unit. A visual light typically blinks when the battery needs replacement. Many units will have both audible and visual indicators.
Battery backup batteries should NEVER be placed in the garbage. All garbage eventually resides in a landfill; the destruction of the battery puts harmful chemicals into the earth. Bring the backup battery (and any battery) to our showroom for regulated recycling.
