Could not have been easier. Pop out the old, type in the model number (maybe serial number?) and order. Arrived a few days later, easy to install. Love the top shelf service.

Battery not the problem.
My APC unit went off line, so I bought and installed a new battery. Surprise! It was the power supply that went bad and not the battery. Great. Now I got a $90 battery with no power supply unit to put it into.

My original battery lasted about 4 years. It was easy to determine the correct replacement unit and simple to order it. Delivery was prompt and installation was simple following the clear instructions that were provided.
Just another typical APC product. Easy to order, great service, easy to install and always works!
I ordered two different batteries for two different UPS (different models). With in a week both UPS where warning of the need to replace the battery. I have a number of other APC units throughout the house with out any issue. Maybe I got a batch of bad batteries, but this round of replacements was worthless. Also, APC used to take back the old batteries (sent prepaid return shipping labels and all). This doesn't seem to be the case any more.
The APC hardware is great, but they never answer an email and this leaves basic questions unanswered, like why does the battery time field in the software remain blank when a new battery is installed, and how can it be fixed?
One of our SU700NETs had the replace battery indicator on. We replaced the battery. The indicator is out. The runtime is back to 17+ minutes.
I used the APC website to determine the correct battery replacement for my customer's APC backup. I placed that order, and received the replacement in a timely manner. The replacement was easy and the customer is satisfied.
Simple battery replacement, usually last 2 to 3 years and pre-paid return program.
From identifying the type of battery to be replaced, ordering it on line, receiving it, charging it, and installing it everything went as smoothly as can be expected. Biggest challenge: How to recycle the used batteries!
My APC SmartUps is 17+ years old. Every few years, I have to buy a replacement battery. I know APC suggests that I replace my unit. However, I know the replacement will not last 17 years. Until the old one dies, I'll keep on buying batteries. APC can't complain. They are still getting some money. It's a win-win for all.
My third replacement battery and it performs exactly as desired.
