Pretty sure it will keep running, and in that case you should be able to hot-swap the batteries, but be prepared for system outage and even a large bang if you're not careful! Mains voltages etc.

You could make sure by choosing a good time, shutting down non-critical systems and disconnecting the batteries for a minute. When it carries on running, you'll know you can hot-swap the batteries :)

The fact that it show warning battery sign is normal because it appears that there is no input power or the input circuit is not working. Trace from first principle check the input power coming to the ups/ then check the fuse/ the rectifier and so on. I hope this will help.Please let me know

U p s by pass l e d flashing light

Batteries in the UPS typically last 3 to 5 years and it depends upon several factors. Including the number of times the unit must go on battery power and environmental conditions. There are usually several batteries in the UPS and while the battery voltage may show 13 volts, this may only be a float charge/voltage and a true indication of the battery voltage and condition requires the batteries to be tested under a load. If one battery is faulty in a set of batteries it will causes the whole battery system to fail and indicate a battery fault.
A faulty charging circuit will not charge the batteries and will also cause a fault condition.

New batteries in Smart UPS 700 only lasts 2 minutes at 30% load

If you blistered your older batteries a good chance your inverter is going or will go bad. The heat alone can do damage to your components. Time to replace the unit and remember next time not to wait so long to replace your batteries. Replacement of batteries every three to approaching four years is a good idea.

APC UPS 1500 w/full load forces immediate reboot at pwr failure


With a 980watt load the run time is only 7 minutes on a brand new battery. If you have the system on full load your run time will be much less and it has likely damaged the battery. here is the APC web site page for your model. If you are running that much equipment I think you need either a bigger UPS or another 1500 and spread the load out.

UPS shuts down when the mains is off.


After 3 years, i would by a new UPS...

The battery will have to be changed if you want to keep the old one.

What i've seen mostly here in south africa. When the battery life has ended they customer opens the ups and takes out the battery and then connects a car battery to the terminals. The then close the ups and let the car battery stand outside the ups.

Hope this info helps...

Smart pro keeps shutting down

it seems that the internal battery is bad, even if it is new but if it stays in the shopping store for long time it may become bad and not charge.

I use my ups to run a fan, a lite, and my computer while I shut it down. An ups is only as good as it's battery. The larger the ups and it's battery, the more watts you can use. The battery will determine how many watthours you get. Some people will put a car battery to an ups. The ups may overcharge the battery and dry it out. The battery may be too much for the ups charging circuit and burn it out, dead ups. I put a 12 volt computer fan on my ups to keep it from overheating, another problem that comes up when you overuse an ups. Where I am, you have to deal with a power company that is not reliable, so I go the extra mile to get more comfort when the power is out.
