Great Company to Deal With
I have APC's power supplies on both my home and my office computer. They're reliable, batteries easy to replace, company easy to order from, broad range of prices to fit my budget. My job keeps me hopping 18/7, so I love companies that make it easy. Thanks.

RBC2 batteries don't last
Specs say "Expected Battery Life (years) 3 - 5"... my last two RBC2 only lasted 18 & 14 months respectively. Noticed warranty is only 12 months. Guess the warrantly people know more about this battery than the marketing/spec people do.

Good service good product and will be using the service again.
The battery arrived packaged perfectly in a timely fashion. It was easy to install and priced competitively. I will definatley be purchasing from Schneider Electric again!
Unlikely that I speak for everyone, but the cost of APC units compared to others is semi-premium. Those of us who buy are obviously more interested in quality than price. Therefore, I would beg you to go back to the way it used to be, with each replacement battery including a return shipping label to recycle the old. I would happily pay a bit more for the battery, ($5-7 should cover it), to eliminate the hassle of needing to find a recycler locally. As we speak, I am staring at a box with nine dead APC batteries that I have nowhere to dispose of.
We have had our APC for over 10 years and it has worked perfectly for those years. The battery usually last us 4-5 years. We have several printers, telephones modems connected to this one and has not let us down. As far as I am concerned a great product.
Lifetime is rated 3-5 years. I got 2.5 on a computer I use pretty infrequently. I paid more for the APC one, thinking it would be better than buying a cheaper on over the internet. Not so sure now...
My APC UPS sounded off every few hours with beeps and a flashing red light to let me know it was time to replace the battery. I ordered online and the battery arrived sooner than expected. I installed it and it's been working fine since. The part I especially like, I didn't have to shut everything off to install.
This was a very easy replacement. And is back in working order. Thank you
My UPS indicated I needed a new battery; so I bought this one and it didn't fix the problem. Looks like I wasted my money.
When my APC UPS indicated a replacement battery was need it was a no brainer to go to APC and buy the right replacement. The replacements I've purchased in the past have always performed great with no concerns about the level of customer service if needed.
The battery is fine and arrived fairly soon. However, I would have liked the unit and or software to let me know the battery was going bad.
