2 out of 5 eggsOverpriced

Pros: APC original

Cons: Very overpriced. Most local battery shops will sell you the cells (a pair of 1207 F2) batteries for about $19 each. 5 minutes of work, and you just saved 50% The RBC is a pair of these batteries, wired in series.

3 out of 5 eggsEh, it works, for a while.

Pros: They work for a while, but don't last as long as they are suggested to last.

Cons: The last two of these that I have ordered have only lasted for about 9-13 months. Typically we used to get a lot more time out of these battery packs. Not happy with quality of new batteries.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Replacement Battery

Pros: Cheaper than a new UPS. Came fully charged in good working order.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I had two old APC UPSes that thought I would have to throw away because they were so old. I'm glad to see that I can still get APC replacement batteries.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: APC 1yr. warranty
Exact replacement

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: The replacement is 2 9ah batteries joined by a replacement connector. In doing a little research I found i could have purchased 2 equivalent batteries and reused my original connector for 1/2 the price. I would recommend just buying replacement batteries.

5 out of 5 eggsAPC RBC33

Pros: Original APC equipment at a reasonable price. My XS1500 is backup and working.

5 out of 5 eggsIdiot Proof

Pros: APC's FREE recycling - just email them (via APC's support website) for a postage paid return label. I reused Newegg box and dropped it off at a Newegg competitor's bricks & motar store.

Cons: Con's - are you serious?
It's a pair of batteries bonded together with a pre-wired power cord = idiot proof !
There are no con's (but see my Other Thoughts)

Other Thoughts: I researched saving money and found a non-APC website that sells replacement battery packs for 1/3 Newegg’s price. Upon close inspection, the rated output (and likely run time) was 1/3 the APC’s. I watched their Youtube on how to cut the old batteries apart, remove the wiring, and then wire their replacement product. Are you kidding me? The APC came fully assembled and pre-wired – just plug it in and slide into the UPS. Done !

4 out of 5 eggsWorks in BackUPS XS 1500

Pros: Works fine. APC quality assured. The first set of batteries lasted 5-6 years - what more can I ask for?

Cons: 2-3x as expensive as compatible brands.

Other Thoughts: There's no shipping label in the box - you have to go to the website on the 'find out about recycling' slip of paper and fill out a form to create a free UPS label. Not huge, but not obvious.

The 'replace battery' light stayed on after a 24-hour charge. I had to hold down the power button for ~5 seconds to kick off a self-test, at which point the light went off. That should be on the instructions instead of me having to search a forum.

I probably should have kept the battery harness from the old batteries to use for outboard extended runtime. Yeah, that would have been a bit ghetto.

4 out of 5 eggsGood price

Pros: Cheap and shipped fast.

Cons: It was a bit tough to shove the replacement cartridge set in the casing/housing and fit the cover back on.

Other Thoughts: This was for the APC XPS series battery back ups. This battery type has a longevity of 3-5 years. I've had mine since 2005 and it lasted 5 years and 4 months before needing to be replaced. It was cheaper than going through APC's exchange/trade in program and all the similar and newer models of backups did not have batteries matching the same longevity as the ones with the RBC33 batteries.

4 out of 5 eggsGood battery - usually - and good company

Pros: I have five UPS's that use this battery, all are the Back-UPS XS 1500 and two of them have the external 24v battery pack. (I'm a computer geek for a liviing and have a home office with several machines). I have used these since I think either 2003 or 2004, and the first one I ever owned still seems to be working and the charge still shows 100% with about 21 minutes of battery operation possible.
I have had only ONE battery fail in less than 2 years (and it was replaced with no questions asked), and the other seem to last 4-5 years without a problem.

Cons: Big fat hairy deal - actually they work well and I have no complaints. However...
Heavy (I knew that, but when you move 5 UPS's and 2 of them have the exteral battery pack machines with 2 of these in each of them, you know you have moved something heavy ).
They aren't free and they don't last forever.
If you have to ship one (or several) of these somewhere, expect shipping costs NOT to be cheap.

Other Thoughts: Just a thought - I believe these are lead-acid. I hope someone at APC is working on a ups with a lithium-ion battery as a next generation replacement.
