5 out of 5 eggsAPC RB17 Battery

Pros: Factory APC replacement, drop-in, no down time. Works just as expected.

Cons: Not a con, but for all those complaining about no return shipping docs - APC ONLY provides that service if you buy the batteries direct from APC, off of their website. This is NOT a NewEgg issue or problem.

1 out of 5 eggsNo core return label?

Pros: Drop in replacement.

Cons: I have probably 40 APC backup UPS units. No core return label. I only spent the extra money on the APC battery because they used to have a return label for the old battery for recycling. There went my only reason for buying APC products. Now I have a hazardous core battery pile until I find a recycler to come get it. APC you just lost a loyal customer.

2 out of 5 eggsNot a fan of APC

Pros: One out of the two batteries is still working.

Cons: One battery is bad after being installed in a Back-UPS for just a month. Just long enough to where I can't return it to NewEgg. Now I get to deal with the manufacturer warranty through APC. :-/

Other Thoughts: Before I started my current position the previous IT manager had installed all APC Back-UPS for every workstation. (approximately 15) Out of those 15 we have had 7 of the units themselves go bad and stop charging batteries. I understand that batteries go bad and need replacing....that's fine. But when 7 of the units themselves stop charging and become nothing more than an overweight surge protector....
I'm slowly replacing all the APC units that go bad with CyberPower units.

5 out of 5 eggsOEM Replacement

Pros: OEM Quality
Same Dimensions as Original

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace a 5 year old battery.. popped the old one out, and put this new one in.. I have checked it a few times simulating a power outage and it works as advertised. I could have bought a cheaper one, but this one is OEM and fit perfectly inside my ES 750. No problems!!

1 out of 5 eggsLooks like a bad batch

Pros: Packaged well

Cons: Didn't include return shipping for the old battery recycling, after 48h charging, was able to charge only to 70%, simulated power outage and the battery stayed 2min only, now, after a week, can't charge to more than 7%.
Tried re-setting, etc, similar to the previous post.

Other Thoughts: Probably a bad batch
I'd stay away from this until NewEgg confirms that they have a new batch that is working well and waves restocking fee for confirmed duds

2 out of 5 eggsnot holding a charge

Pros: Easy install, well packaged.

Cons: after one week the battery is now only charging to 70% down each day a few percentages. Tried rebooting, reinstalling. Looks like maybe a dude. Will monitor for another week then ask for a replacement.

Other Thoughts: Check with your local Staples to dispose of the old battery. They do not charge for recycling these an e-waste.

5 out of 5 eggsI'm happy

Pros: Great price, especially with free Shoprunner shipping.

You can print a free return shipping label. See Other thoughts.

Cons: The clear plastic piece around the positive terminal was stuck on crooked. I had to unstick it and straighten it before I could plug in the wire. This was pretty easy.

Other Thoughts: How to get a free return shipping label:
Included with the battery is a Battery Disposal Information paper with a link to a web site for battery disposal locations. Near the top of this website is a link to "how to create your prepaid return label for spent UPS batteries" which takes you to yet another page with another link and login information for a "UPS Returns on the Web" page where you create the label.

Symptoms that the old battery was dead:
-Being awoken in the middle of the night to a high pitched whine. It was difficult to pinpoint the source at first, but it was definitely the UPS.
-PowerChute software self-test failed to complete.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a battery

Pros: Item was well packaged and was exactly as represented in the advertisement. The battery works and the backup unit no longer alarms. The instructions that came with the battery clearly illustrated how to replace the battery. In addition, instructions were provided telling you how to obtain a free UPS return label to ship back the old battery.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have been buying my batteries from another internet company and my last one didn't last as long as I thought it should. Hopefully, this APC battery will give me better service.
