2 out of 5 eggsNot worth the money. Dead @ 2yr 6mo.

Pros: Brand name - Would expect battery to last as advertised ( 3 - 5 yrs. )

Cons: Only lasted 2 yr. 6 mo. 9/12/2011 - 3/25/2014 Not good for a Name Brand product

Other Thoughts: Could there have been a bad batch ? I see others also purchased late 2011 that died. Will not spend the money for Genuine APC again.

1 out of 5 eggsDead today 01-21-2014 new 09-09-11

Pros: worked well up until two-three months ago. APCC and/or newegg should replace it with a new one at a discount.

Cons: RBC7 not even 3 years life, and less than 2 1/2 years and now dead.

Other Thoughts: Only the electrical current still runs thru the Smart UPS SUA1500 so i can boot my PC but it is unprotected from outages, so I shut it down.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth my money

Pros: Great OEM battery. Pricey but worth my piece of mind and warranty. Connector already attached and ready to go for instant swap of battery.

Cons: Price could be lower for unit itself considering it's just the battery and nothing more.

4 out of 5 eggsNot the best, not that bad.

Pros: APC re-branded replacement battery is usually ready to install and somewhat pre-charged because it goes thru performance testing process. You have the cable assemblies / connectors installed.

Cons: They are expensive and lately, the longevity is not there. This is also true for other SLA battery brands. I have been rebuilding the battery assembly for our data center rackmounts and standalones, for over 10 years. Previously, they last about 30-36 months. Now I am seeing as low as 15 to 24 months. If you have to replace a single failed battery unit from a pack, you might as well replace them all for a complete rebuild.

Other Thoughts: True- sometimes, it is cheaper to buy a new UPS but it will also require downtime to replace it. When you run a mission critical server, it is more practical to replace the battery module with the server stying online. You just need to be more proactive in responding to those replace battery warnings. When you buy the battery itself, stick with respectable brands, you get much better service life out of them.

1 out of 5 eggsOutrageous Price

Pros: Absolutely nothing

Cons: Price is way too high

Other Thoughts: Buyer beware. I have been using 3rd party SLA batteries as replacements in every UPS I've owned in my home and at work (once a unit is no longer under warranty). I have never had an issue related to performance or quality when using a 3rd party battery. Why anyone would pay these prices for an OEM battery which in this case offers no additional benefit, increase in performance or reliability. Look elsewhere... there is nothing wrong with using a good quality 3rd party battery in your UPS. They are every bit as good, and every bit as reliable as OEM.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 1 year, 2 months

Pros: Fast New Egg shipping.

Cons: Installed 7/10/10, (failed) died 9/20/11
You expect 3 years not a little over one year of usage.

Other Thoughts: Waste of money, we've had 3rd party batteries last longer.

4 out of 5 eggsReal APC battery, ships fast

Pros: This is a real APC battery and replacement was fast and easy. Newegg shipped it very quickly. Hopefully will give me another 5-6 years of life out of the higher end APC ups I have.

Cons: It no longer contains the return shipping labels, so to be eco friendly, you'll have to return it to a local Staples or some other large battery recycling facility.

5 out of 5 eggsBuy the complete UPS for 20 dollars more

Pros: Suggest that one simply buy a new UPS for 20 bucks more, free shipping.

Makes no sense to just buy a new battery.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: None

1 out of 5 eggsToo expensive.

Pros: Genuine non-warranty-voiding APC battery with all required cables, tape, and plastic shroud.

Cons: Buying two sealed lead acid batteries of equal specification costs 1/4 the price and work just as good.

5 out of 5 eggsMy UPS works again! :-P

Pros: Real APC battery. I know it is certified to work properly in my UPS. My UPS can once again support a load of more than 5% without shutting down during a test. LOL.

Cons: Kind of heavy, but it's a battery. Expensive too, but still far cheaper than buying a new UPS or even doing a trade in with APC. No brainer to me.

Other Thoughts: My original battery lasted about 5 years. No complaints. I expect this to last just as long. Before I replaced my battery with this, my UPS would go to run a self-test (Smart-UPS 1000XL) and just drop the load to everything connected to it! I was putting off buying this because it was so expensive, but when everything started losing power, I had to. After replacing it with this my UPS sustained power to my PC for about an hour during a calibration test. Be sure to drop your old battery off at a local recycling center! NewEgg shipped this to me super cheap considering the weight of the package. I think it was about 35lbs! I got it next day after I placed the order.
