Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works greatI am glad I noticed the failed battery light and was able to replace the battery before I really needed it. Shortly after I replaced the battery, we had a problem with the power line feeding our building, half of the 240 volt line failed leaving half of our building without power, including our phone system. The battery backup kept the phone system up for an extended period of time allowing me to make the changes necessary to get power to the phone system.

I found out about recycling by accident and had to ask.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems WellQuick Note: My session timed out while writing my review and so I am now retyping everything... ...would have been nice had the page not lost everything (was literally on the last field, getting ready to hit submit) :(Short version: Have used a couple of APC UPSs for the last 5/6 years straight with two 24-hr/day servers running off them - they've run for over 40,000 hours and have performed fantastically, I attribute a lot of that to the UPSs doing their job.I weighed out getting a new UPS or just replacing the battery. Opted for the replacement and everything seems great so far. The replacement process was easy, though I should have taken more precaution when handling the batteries as I ended up with some acid on my fingers - nothing painful but I did have "rough" fingertips for 3-4 days after.All in all, everything is "just working" so 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Delivery timeI was very pleasantly surprised that my replacement battery was delivered to my door by courrier within 48 hr of my on-line order, which was placed on a weekend. This was the first time that I had ever tried replacing a battery instead to just buying a new UPS unit. None of the retailers selling APC products carry replacement batteries, and since I live in Canada, I expected that the cost of bringing in a replacement battery would exceed the cost of a new unit.. and be bogged down with customs duties.. etc. Battery was actually shipped from a nearby Canadian distributor. It is certainly more environmentally-friendly to replace a battery rather that throwing out a perfectly good UPS system. APC should do more to inform Canadian customers how easy it is (& cost -effective) to replace batteries. Perhaps include battery replacement information in packaging for new units.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from APC Battery Replacement-PainlessMy APC LS700 started beeping and I figured out quickly the Battery Cartridge needed replacement. Finding the replacement on the APC website was easy and purchasing it was 'Painless'. Knowing I was getting the exact replacement to power the LS700 was great- I've read reviews where people thought they'd save some pennies by buying a 'Compatible Battery' only to have headaches from it not working. It arrived within a week (honestly for the weight of the replacement at $15 shipping - they should have offered next day shipping). Installation was a breeze, anyone that needs a Replacement Battery Cartridge would be crazy to buy anywhere else but APC.com! They are number one in my books!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid productSolid product and APC makes great UPS units. The only area for improvement to me is twofold; 1) Mark the outside of the battery with the model number (Ex: RBC15) so it's easy to match-up when ordering. 2) Make the sticker on the outside of the UPS unit larger or at least the font larger so that when you need to reference the model number and serial number, they're easy to read.

There is not much room to maneuver your hands/fingers.Once the new battery was connected and installed, the UPS worked as expected. PowerChute recognized the battery was changed.Cost was a little more than I expected to pay for just a battery (i.e., more than 1/2 the cost of a new unit). Also, shipping was higher than I expected (considering flat rate shipping available from USPS as well as the fact that they must get a steep discount from FedEx/UPS).Finally, I did not appreciate that I had to pay UPS to pickup the old battery for recycling since this was a residential location even though I had a prepaid return label.

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 Very good purchaseThis was a very good purchase for me as I did not want to invest in a complete new UPS. Was easy to install and get back up and running. The battery return was a little bumpy when it came to getting a return label, but when I figured it out, all went well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery ReplacementBattery arrived quickly and was easy to install. The replacement solved my low-battery issues. The online recycle information needs to be updated. I tried returning it to Staples, as the www.apc.com/site/recycle/ indicated as Option 4, but was told Staples stopped taking APC batteries a year ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RBC-17Installation was easy. There wasn't any label incuded for the return of the spent battery (for recycling). I had to navigate to another section to find the label and print it. Recommend that the return label for recycling the spent battery be included with the shipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement didn't workThe replacement would not hold a charge. From the time I plugged it in the battery power just went down and would not charge. Thought it might be the unit so I put in a diffrent battery and the unit works fine. I didn't want to go through the effort to return it and had I not received the email requesting a review I probably wouldn't have done anything. I was just very disappointed and mad!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery size anomalyI determined from this site that the correct battery replacement for my 4-year-old Back-UPS ES 750 (which was beeping frequently) is the RBC 17. The replacement is much smaller than the original battery, and will require shims so it does not move around in the case. There was no warning with the new battery. I decided to reinstal the original battery, and noted that the lugs were pretty loose, so after snugging them up, the old battery seems to be working fine now. I am in the Caribbean, so it is not easy to return and replace the battery. Just thought this may be helpful to another customer who runs into the same problem.

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 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 Good Battery, Poor DocumentationWhen the battery arrived, it came with installation instructions for several different model numbers, none of which matched my UPS. I had to discard the instructions and install the battery with some guess work.Nowhere in the recycling instructions does it say how to return the spent battery to APC. I looked at the website but it was unnecessarily confusing and difficult to use. I had to call customer service and have them walk me through the procedure step by step.The battery itself is working fine so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low battery alarm still ringsThe replacement battery arrived with clear instructions as to how to remove the old battery and install the new one. Installation was a breeze. The contacts were securely attached. Unfortunately, the low battery alarm still continues to regularly sound, which is a bit of a nuisance and brings into question whether the old battery really needed replacing in the first place..

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 ExperienceI thought that I had an order that was including a return of the old battery. However, upon reading the info included in the product , I find that I should take it to staples and pay double digit amount to have them dispose of it . So currently it is sitting in my garage because I don't want to pay more money. Perhaps I was mistaken. Just be aware of this snag. The battery I received works great and was delivered promptly.

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.
