What is the lifespan of an typical UPS battery and how do I know when to replace it? Cost and regularity of changing internal batteries in your UPS System is probably one of the most common questions when it comes to maintaining a typical Uninterruptible Power Supply. In short, the life of UPS internal batteries is almost impossible to predict. It’s common to assume that the batteries will last between 2-5 years given standard operating conditions. There are many factors that can affect the useful life, such as ambient temperature, battery quality, discharge/recharge frequency, humidity, etc. ...

Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS Systems) and the reasons why Lithium-ion (Li-Ion) batteries are not commonly used Majority of Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS Systems) utilise valve-regulated lead-acid batteries (VRLA battery) sometimes referred to as sealed lead-acid (SLA), gel cell, or maintenance free batteries. However, Li-Ion batteries have a much higher energy density allowing them to be smaller and weigh less than half of an equivalent Valve Regulated Sealed Lead-Acid (VRLA) battery. So why are the Lithium-ion batteries not common in modern UPS Systems such as APC UPS or Eaton UP...
