No, that right. The batteries are wires in series so the voltage is 24v and they need a little high input than that to charge correctly.

APC Smart-UPS 1000VA UPS System calibation problem

If battery charge indicator is flashing it should be UPS calibration issue, If all the LED indicator is light up in the front panel and UPS still can go online on battery mode you just need to replace the board on the front panel and the light will just back to normal state.

Apc 1400

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. There maybe one battery in a set of batteries that is faulty and causes the whole battery system to fail and indicate a battery fault.
The other possibility is the charging circuit may be faulty.
