A lot of consumers are confused about picking a replacement battery for a Smart UPS 1500. Everyone wants a long lasting high quality battery and everyone wants to save money at the same time. There has to be a happy medium.
So the battery on your APC Smart-UPS 1500 needs to be replaced, the red light to replace battery is on and the unit won’t stop beeping. You start looking online but with so many options you are not sure where to go. Here are some of the main factors you should be looking for when shopping for a smart ups 1500 replacement battery.
You want to make sure that you are buying a brand new battery. Do not buy used batteries or refurbished. There is no such thing as a refurbished battery. SLA batteries cannot be refurbished, don’t be fooled and ripped off.
Also, do not buy used batteries as their life time is not guaranteed and they will not provide you with reliable performance. Make sure the battery you are buying is brand new and fresh stock.
Make sure the lifespan of the battery is 3-5 years. Some vendors will sell cheaper batteries and will not mention the life span. They do this because those batteries have a life span of 6-12 months, then they go bad and need to be replaced again. You don’t want to buy those batteries. The battery you buy should have a life span of 3-5 years with normal use.
Keep an eye out for length of warranty. Some vendors will sell you a cheap battery but when it comes time to claim the warranty, they are nowhere to be found. Buy a battery with a one year full replacement warranty. That way, if something goes wrong with the battery and it prematurely wears out, you are taken care of.
When it comes to batteries for your APC Smart-UPS 1500, you don’t want to take risks. Make sure you get high quality batteries that will ensure your unit always performs at peak performance. Your batteries should provide a long runtime and give you peace of mind knowing you are protected.
