-Anonymous quote

Purchased this battery to replace the one in my APC XS1000. As instructed, I replaced the battery and charged it overnight, then plugged in my system. It seemed to work fine, so I used the packaging to return the used battery for recycling. After about 2 weeks, the "replace battery" indicator on my APC started up again. After going back and forth with APC and Buy.com, APC now says my UPS unit is bad, but Buy.com would not accept a return on the battery without the packaging and it was slightly outside their 2-week return window. APC won't refund me, and claims my UPS is out of warranty. So, $60 and a lot of aggravation later, I have a UPS that may be broken, a battery that may be bad, and nothing that works. Replacement batteries are probably a false economy. Just wait for a sale price on a new UPS unit.

Works as advertised

This battery replacement pack works exactly as it should. Installation was a snap and APC provides a postage-paid UPS shipping label for returning your old battery.
