I ordered these batteries for an APC SMT1000i Smart UPS. The batteries fit fine, came well packaged with very quick delivery and the terminals fit my existing UPS without an issue. The Open Circuit Voltage of the batteries when receiving them was also good. (12.9V-13V). The UPS had no trouble recognising them and after fully charging them I started to to a calibration/load test on them. APC's website say that brand new APC official batteries can deliver around 375 watts of power for 15 minutes. I set up the UPS connected to a 375 ish watt load and disconnected the UPS. I expected to only gain around 12 minutes of runtime from them and was happy that the runtime approximately matched APC's official RBCs at 15 Minutes! I recommend these batteries at the time being thanks to my very non scientific test that you almost certainly should not take as the worlds most accurate figures, but only time will tell how long they last.

Battery and service good as usual ( I'll certainly buy here again!); BUT I wish the packaging was not expanded polystyrene!

Battery was delivered promptly. Unfortunately I had ordered wrong type and my mistake was dealt with by knowledgeable and helpful staff who sorted me out very quickly and smoothly.

What is a UPS Battery?
The UPS is effectively a bank of 12V batteries that through the use of an inverter are converted to a 240V power source. Your computer equipment is connected to the mains through the battery bank, which is constantly kept at peak charge through the mains source. Should the mains power fail, the battery bank becomes the power supply. The ideal scenario would be for the battery power to last until the mains power is returned, but should the battery power deplete before this time, most UPS systems will safely shut down the computer equipment without any data loss.
Another benefit of connecting your delicate computer equipment through a UPS is that in most systems any power surges or power spikes are smoothed to the point that they never reach your computer systems.
You may simply have a tiny UPS that supports your desktop personal computer, or you may have a huge data centre that has banks and banks of UPS circuits. Either way, we can supply batteries for your UPS system.
