My APC Smart-UPS 1000 is dying

by Volker Weber

It is now an IPS, which means the battery appears to be wasted. Does anybody out there have a replacement kit, or knows somebody who can get a RPC6 battery really cheap? It lists for 200 Euro and goes for 170. Yikes. Hey, that is only two 12V 11Ah gel batteries.

Update: Ahmad Masrieh has referred me to Reichelt.de who sell replacement batteries for less than 30 Euro each. So I can replace them for less than 60something Euro including shipping. How cool is that?

Mein Tipp, schau mal beim Conrad vorbei ;) Ich bin mir nicht sicher welche Akkus genau in deiner drinnen sind, und wie deine ueberhaupts aussieht. Aber wenns so ne kleine schnuckelige ist (also kein Rackteil) dann weiss ich, dass ich dafuer schonmal Akkus fuer weniger als die haelfte der orginal APC kosten bei Conrad geholt habe.

Ich selber besitze nur eine 19" rackmount APC SmartUPS 1400.

- just open the APC case
- identify the voltage and size of the batteries
- goto http://www.reichelt.de and order appropriate batteries (e.g. Panasonic)
- replace battery
- run runtime test and diagnostic

Done.

Run's perfectly.

Panasonic LCR-12V 12PF-1, Blei-Gel-Akku, 12 Volt, 12 Ah, H: 94mm, L: 151mm, B: 98mm, Gewicht: 3,90Kg

28,65 Euro bei Reichelt.de. Mal zwei plus Versand und Versicherung, macht 62,26 Euro. Das ist ein Wort. ;-)

Hab' so ein Teil vor vielen Jahren mit einer Conrad-Batterie für wenig Geld wieder flott gemacht. War enorm einfach und läuft seither problemlos.

Conrad sind echte Räuber. Da kostet der selbe Akku 49,95.

Danke für den Tip. Meine SmartUPS 1000 ist auch tot und braucht neue Akkus.
