You can increase the capacity of the batteries from the original equipment, but you cannot put more load onto the UPS. Your runtime may be increased, but you may have trouble fitting the car batteries into the case. Some UPS's have external connectors for external battery packs. Find one of those and add the batteries to it. Make sure that you maintain the DC voltage which the UPS requires. It may be 12 volts or 24volts. Two 12 volt batteries in Series.

Unfortunately not. The batteries for UPS's are made exactly for each model, not only in voltage and amperage ratings, but also to fit in the UPS casing.

How do you check the battery status?


Check battery voltage using Volt meter=> it should be about 12.6 to 13.8 vdc.
Pull the battery out... checking the deforming at the case ..such as "swelling"... if yes .. replace the battery.
Replacement battery is about 10-20 dollars on e-bay (watch for shipping charge and size. and terminal connection sizes )
The average life of battery on UPS is about 5-7-10 years wi)th UPS plugged in (Charging
One I had my local Autozone checked my 12 VDC -8 AH ... ask them to set CCA at about 100 AMP...
for 12 VDC -14 AH ask them to set CCA about 200 AMP.
For a 12 VDC -75 AH (group 24) they set the load on their tester at about 700-900 CCA.
You can also buy a manual battery load test at Harror freigt tool for about $20 US dollars (On sale)

I HAVE HP 800VA UPS AND I WANT TO ATTACH A 12V 42AH BATTERY INSTEAD OF 12V 9Ah BATTERY IS THERE ANY PROBLEM TO MY UPS OR NOT.


Well you see it may not charge properly, on the other hand it may just trickle charge it so ok. It will NOT hurt anything though it would just last longer.. providing it gets charged.

Ups is not getting charged


Turn it off, and remove the battery.
Check the manufacture-date on the battery -- it's probably very "old",
i.e., it has expired due to old age. Replace the battery.
Or, there are places that will take the battery, open it,
replace the rechargeable cells, close it, and ship it back to you,
for a lower price than buying a new battery.

WHAT IS THE AMMOUNT OF POWER CONSUPTION FOR A UPS OF 30amphs and a model of R5500XR


That UPS is rated for 5000 VA and 4500 Watt.

It will power appliances at 100% for a bit less than 5 minutes (5 minutes correspond to 31.25 Ah, not 30), but "typical" endurance time is around 15 minutes.

Maximum power consumption is around 4600W, which is for a completely flat battery being recharged while at the same time powering 4500W (100%) of utilities.
