Don’t let your batteries get this bad, the risk is too great!

Keep these facts in mind:
  • Batteries are most likely to fail when you need them most, during a power outage!
  • Batteries are much more likely to fail after 3 years of age or sooner in hot environments.
  • Batteries need routine maintenance to provide the best reliability.
  • It only takes one battery in a string to take down the whole UPS during an outage.

    If you wait:

    • Batteries may fail during next power outage!
    • Batteries may swell and be almost impossible to remove.
    • Batteries may leak acid creating a hazardous condition.
    • Batteries can catch fire!
