1 out of 5 eggsit lasted about a year

Pros: easy to install, fits properly

Cons: dead with in a year

Other Thoughts: I bought this battery @ 12/1 2008 and @12/3 2009 the the APC unit started to beep with a red light on. I own a another older APC unit and the thing is still going strong, ( 6+ years lol ) I can't expect this thing to last me 6 years but a year.... I was hoping at least 3 years with this kind of price :( I guess its a hit or miss with this kind of product.

I guess I'll have to do more research on ups

2 out of 5 eggsNot as good anymore

Pros: They claim that if you buy their battery you keep the lifetime equipment protection, but there is a limit to the time for that.

Cons: The batteries are not as good as they used to be. My home units fail (I have six Smart Ups 700, and one 750) a few months after two years. APC batteries cost twice as much.

Other Thoughts: I have been tracking replacement dates for a lot of years so I have receipts to prove that the barely last through warranty. I have always used APC at work and at home. Their poor quality is making me reconsider my loyalty to them. There are a lot of other vendors for lower quality products.

Pros: This replacement cartridge comes with the wiring harness, the fuse and and box to recycle the old batteries.

Cons: After slightly over the 2 year warranty the batteries went dead on 3 Smart UPS 750's I have that use this battery pack. All within a month of each other. APC used to use very high quality batteries and for them to last 4-5 years was common. Not any more. I removed the APC label on the dead batteries to discover APC is using batteries made in China, and are not name brand batteries. Have you ever heard of batteries made by "Vision"? What about the other set I have made by a company called "Long". They used to use name brand batteries such as "CSB" - Obviously not any more.

Other Thoughts: For a premium price you should get premium batteries. Newegg is always the best. Great prices, and great service. It's not their fault if APC supplies them with inferior products.
