Hi all,

I have never had to replace a UPS system before. I was just wondering can a battery actually be replaced or is it just the done thing to go and purchase a new UPS system?

Any replies here will be greatly received.

I've replaced them before. Depending on what you paid for the unit, it may be more cost effective to buy a new one. I took mine into a Batteries Plus type of a place, and they even installed it for me ;) My APC UPS 650 was around $35 I think.

If it's still under warranty, APC will ship you a new unit, and you just put that one back in the box and return it to them. I did that a few years ago as well..not sure what their policy is currently.

I just replaced the batteries in my APC 1100VA unit, it was cheaper than I could find a new one. OTOH, for smaller units, I've generally found that I can find a new one for a similar price, complete with new batteries.
