    Very BAD idea. 1. You don't need an external charger,perhaps an external monitoring device but defeating the internal charger assy will cause a fault in your system.

Two issues must be noted in this case.
First of all working the UPS continuously on the battery for more than the stipulated time of the design could generate problems especially if the heat sinks for the MOSFETS are insufficient. Secondly the charging circuit is designed along with the drain circuit and so you need to get the battery charged externally in parallel with a proper cut off circuit.
My suggestion to you is that Instead of this modification, it is better to get an UPS/Inverter of 500 VA which will easily work on the 1000AH battery, new designs are compact and efficient. You keep aside this short period UPS for a specific purpose or even connect this to the main UPS/Inverter.

I connected 8, 100Ah battery with APC 2.2KVA inverter, now it doesnt give correct battery indication and keep producing beeping noise, whats the problem?

Continuous Beeping (theamber On Battery LED will be illuminated)
This alarm indicates that the UPS has reached aLow Battery condition and will soon shutdown. The UPS can only operate onbattery for a limited amount of time. In order to protect the unit's batteriesfrom discharging too much, the UPS will shutdown and turn off its output. Towarn you that the unit will soon shutdown, the UPS will sound this alarm 2minutes before actual shutdown. With optional Powerchute Plus software, 2minutes can be changed to 5, 7, or 10 minutes to give you more of a warning ofimpending shutdown. If you hear this tone, you should immediately gracefullyshutdown your operating system to prevent data loss or corruption.
Note:This graceful shutdown will occur automatically if Powerchute PLUS software isbeing used.

Constant, Solid Tone (the red Overload LEDwill be illuminated)
This alarm indicates that the UPS has detectedan Overload condition. If this alarm is sounded, try removing non-essentialequipment. The alarm will remain until the load is reduced. To determine ifyour UPS is capable of handling the equipment you want to protect, visit APC'sSizing Guide at

Continuous Beeps for One Minute; RepeatedEvery 5 Hours (Replace Battery LED will be illuminated)
This alarm indicates that the UPS has failed itsSelf-Test of the battery. The unit will continue to sound this alarm until theunit passes the test. Try to let the unit charge for a few hours and thenperform another Self-Test (Press and hold the on/off button until the second'chirp', then release). If it fails and the unit is still in-warranty (twoyears from date of purchase), then contact APC. If the unit fails and its outof warranty, then order a replacement battey cartridge through your reseller,distributor, or from APC's web site.

We can charging for 100AH battery for in 650 APC UPS. its possible or not

Yes you can change the battery. All you need to do is ensure that the replacement battery has the right physical size to fit in the cabinet and meets the required spec. Simply having a larger AH rating means that it will last longer under load when it is required and will take longer to charge after it has been used.

Back up problem

The time will lower the longer u keep using it. Every (Chemical) battery needs to be replaced periodically and maybe its time to change your UPS batteries too. Since you were using double battery, it is supposed to be replaced every 4 yrs or so if it is used regularly.....sodeep
