The APC RBC 5 is a high-performance, safe, eco-friendly replacement battery cartridge for Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS). This sealed lead-acid battery comes with suspended electrolyte to ensure leak-proof performance, and delivers a long-lasting battery life.

The environment-friendly design helps protect the environment.
High-performance Replacement Battery Cartridge The APC RBC 5 battery is tested and approved to restore the performance of your APC UPS. It offers a long battery life of 3-5 years, so you can use it to extend the operating life of your existing UPS systems.
Easy hot-swap installation Installation has never been so easy. The APC RBC 5 battery contains a minimum number of connections. Because it is hot-swappable, no downtime is required in order to install them.

Moreover, it has prepaid postage to a nearby recycling partner (availability varies by country). This ensures that almost 100% of the old battery is recycled, protecting the environment.
This review is from: APC RBC5 Replacement Battery Cartridge #5
Pros: It worked for two years.
Cons: The one it replaced worked for 7 years.
When I first received this battery I questioned APC as to why the new battery was 375 grams lighter than the old battery. They told me this was within normal tolerance. Coming from the lead acid battery manufacturing industry I know that this is not correct. 150 grams would be within tolerance. Since the warranty is only 12 months I can't get a warranty replacement.
Other Thoughts: I'm done with APC batteries. I've now switched to using ABC batteries since they carry a 2 year warranty and are half the price.
