5 - The new battery replacement date will be set to the current date and the replace battery indicator on the Back-UPS should disappear.

NOTE: Not all Back-UPS model UPSs allow the battery replacement date to be updated via software, and not all Back-UPS include the Run Self-Test option via PowerChute. This feature is determined based on the Back-UPS model and firmware the Back-UPS shipped with. If the option is not displayed within PowerChute, your UPS does not support running a self-test or updating the battery replacement date via software.
