Battery safety

• When replacing batteries, replace with the same number and type. Always replace all batteries at the same time, and only use official APC Replacement Battery Cartridges
• Batteries typically last for two to five years. Environmental factors impact battery life. Elevated ambient temperatures, poor quality utility power, and frequent short duration discharges will shorten battery life. Batteries should be replaced before end of life.
• Replace batteries immediately when the unit indicates battery replacement is necessary.
• Schneider Electric uses Maintenance-Free sealed Lead Acid batteries. Under normal use and handling, there is no contact with the internal components of the battery. Over charging, over heating or other misuse of batteries can result in a discharge of battery electrolyte. Released electrolyte is toxic and may be harmful to the skin and eyes.

Should you encounter swollen or leaking APC batteries, contact APC Support for guidance

• CAUTION: Before installing or replacing the batteries, remove jewelry such as wristwatches and rings.
• CAUTION: Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. The batteries may explode.
• CAUTION: Do not open or mutilate batteries. Released material is harmful to the skin and eyes and may be toxic.

Smart-UPS and Back-UPS products contain internal batteries and may present a shock hazard even when disconnected from the branch circuit (mains).
Before installing or servicing the equipment check that the:
• Input circuit breaker is in the OFF position.
• Internal UPS batteries are disconnected.

Internal Batteries must be disconnected prior to shipment of the unit.
