Arrived discharged, worried about longevity2/28/2011
I purchased this battery for my APC SU700NET over the OEM battery due to cost. When initially connected, the battery showed fully discharged, which is not good for the health of a lead-acid battery. Date code on the individual batteries is almost a year old, so these may have been on the shelf for a while. The battery does work, but I am concerned about reduced capacity due to sulfation while the battery was stored in a discharged state. I suspect I will need to replace this battery sooner than usual, which of course will erase the savings I thought I was getting by buying non-OEM.
I bought a SU700NET UPS at a surplus sale for $0.25 but it was dead. I was hoping that this normally priced $250 - $3--+ UPS for small businesses, would work after I got it home. No dice. I was deciding between this (Tipp Lite) lower costing battery twin for my UPS and the APC version which was about ten dollars more. Well $$ won out simply because I didn't even know if the thing worked, I wanted to spend as little as possible in case it the UPS was broken. Was I ever happy with what I got. This thing comes nearly fully charged, but with a UPS you should ASSUME it is not charged, and the hope is that you never need it to kick onto battery back-up power. But if it does, this thing is powerfull. I tested it two differnt times under full load and everything worked without a hitch! I have no problem RECOMMENDING THIS ONE OVER THE APC - OEM due to price. Running since before X-mas time (4 months now)!
