Over time UPS batteries wear out. This leads to a loss of power capacity and runtime. Here are four reasons why you should only use genuine APC RBCs in your APC UPS:

Use of a non-APC battery will void APC's Equipment Protection Policy

APC recycles used batteries and almost 100% of the battery lead content is reused, protecting the environment. With each purchase of a genuine APC replacement battery, you get free freight back to APC for proper disposal of your old batteries (currently available in USA only.)

APC provides a 1-year warranty on each Replacement Battery Cartridge.

APC supplies the appropriate instructions for your UPS, along with any needed wires and connectors. All connections are made with high current gas-tight crimps for high reliability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Short lifeThe old battery lasted only a little over 2 years. I think it's time for me to try a 3rd-party product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extends UPS lifeConsidered replacing UPS with an upgrade when battery in one of two died after 4 years. Instead, replaced both batteries saving the expense. UPS working fine. No need to replace. Only batteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy replacementI've been using APC battery back-ups for many years and I always just bought a new one because it was quicker. This time when my back-up started acting up I decided to purchase a replacement battery, just to see how the whole process worked. I ordered it on the APC site, they delivered it quickly and it was a snap to install. Quite an easy process.For those who have said that APC should provide a means to recycle the batteries, they do. On their site you can print out a UPS label to send it to a recycling center, or they also have a deal with Staples to accept batteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for MeThis is the second replacement battery I've purchased for the Back Ups which supports my TV and Satelite System, DVR, DVD and VCR. It has worked well for a number of years, including seeing me through the breakdown of the NE Power Grid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from APC ReplacementBattery arrived on time. Did not realize they were refurbished. It looked like it had been beat up and dragged on the street, but seems to be working just fine. The icon at the bottom of the screen telling you how much time is left in the battery is gone - is there some way to install that software? I can't find the original disc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from APC Worth the MoneyAfter a severe power surge fried our computers a few years ago, we began looking for something stronger than the cord-type surge protectors. APC won out and we have used it for over 3 years and it has saved us several times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to installAfter a thunderstorm knocked out my power last month, I found my 6-year old UPS had given up the ghost. It took just minutes to find the proper replacement battery on the APC website, and it was delivered to my door in 3 days. Replacement took about 20 minutes, half of which was time checking the instructions to make sure I had everything right. It was harder to get to this review site than it was to actually perform the replacement!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement BatteryThe battery was a perfect fit. The website was easy to use to find my replacement battery. The one downside is that the APC website indicated that they would let me send back the used/old battery. All I received was a sheet of paper that directed me to local battery disposal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from False advertisingThere is no "FREE Battery Disposal Incl.". CDW will NOT include a return UPS label for you to send the dead battery back to CDW to properly disposal the battery yourself. All they provided is instructions on how to dispose the battery YOURSELF at your own expenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best everI couldn't find a replacement battery for my surge protector ANYWHERE in town, so I called the number on the battery. I was so surprised that I could get it replaced so easily, this battery had lasted 7 (seven) years! It was here SO FAST and the cost was much LESS than I ever thought it would be, I am a very happy customer!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Done!I ordered a replacement battery for my UPS. I came quickly, the installation was easy (easier if you have slender fingers) and the ability to send the old battery for recycling was perfect. The process of downloading the shipping label (free shipping!) re-using the box and dropping it off at a UPS store was simple. Thanks APC

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great batteryThe battery runs perfectly in my LS-700. The instructions do not include the LS-700 model, but it is very similar to all the other APC systems and this was not a problem. Installation took about 2 minutes. A slightly longer pair of wires would be nice. The clips are very sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fix the ConnectorsThe life of my old battery was about 3.5 years, normal for this application. When I installed the new battery, I still heard the ear-shattering squeal. Turned out, the black connector came loose as I stuffed the battery back into the UPS. Normally these type connectors are somewhat tight; these are not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Life?While I am very happy with the unit in general, the battery life is less than desired. They advertise a life of 3-5 years. I have had to replace the battery twice short of the 3 year mark. No real problem with outages, I just use it a home to protect the system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery ReplacementI recently purchased a APC Replacement Battery Cartridge #17. I got the best deal on the web through APC AND received an outstanding product to boot. My computer is protected, and I'm happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long time user - dependable productsBattery life exceeds my expectation, the replacement alarm is not adjustable, making timely replacement essential. Old battery is easily removed, the replacement battery goes in with a bit of difficulty due to length of wires, however, longer wires would have been a packaging problem - time to replace from initial power down of unit to power up was less than 5 minutes. No difficulty with UPS since replacement - looking forward to another couple of years dependable service.
