Re: turned off my system

Well, it did just what it's supposed to do, protect your system from bad power. You probably had a power failure during the thunderstorm and your UPS shut down your PC. When you turn it back on the battery was too low and it shut off you PC again.Check your UPS software in windows, you should have an option to run a self test. But it should be just fine.

Looks like you need a new battery.Your model discontinued and there is some support for it.

I have a CyberPower 725SL UPS. Shortly after turning it on, it will beep as if AC power was lost and the green light goes out. I checked the battery and it's good. I'm assuming something went bad with...

Couple different items to check.
  • Try letting the unit set ideal for overnight charging the battery. Do not even turn the unit on.
  • Replace the battery.
If you turn the unit on when the battery is plugged in and does not keep a charge you can almost be sure it is the battery or the charging circuit not maintaining the battery.

CyberPower CPS825AVR trips after 5 seconds

Needs a new batter most likely. The same thing happened to my CPS825AVR that I use in my home office. Emails to CyberPower went unanswered so I had to solve it on my own. It uses a lead acid battery much like those used in emergency lighting, and not unlike a battery in your car. It will initially fail to keep your electronics on after a power failure, just shutting off and beeping like mad. Then it will fail to stay on entirely. Try holding down the red reset button for a period of time. It may reset, but chances are it will not work after you unplug it from the wall to simulate a power outage, and will need to be reset again.

For me the first failure occurred when the unit was left in storage. Like most batteries a lead acid battery if left uncharged will deteriorate and be unable to hold a charge. The second battery purchased online just failed after barely more than one year. It was a battery made by Werker, which is a very common replacement battery for emergency lighting also. At this point I am not going to spend any more money in this unit. It is unclear to me as to whether it is a lousy battery or the unit is unable to maintain a charge in such a way that the battery will survive a long life.

I will buy a UPS made by APC, I am using an APC for my entertainment system now. They are more readily supported and offer more options with regard to replacement batteries. I suggest finding a model to suit your needs and then search to see what support there is for it. I got about 5 years out of the first battery and was able to easily get a replacement online. The APC batteries are also relatively competitive in pricing so there is less need to pursue an aftermarket brand.

Cbyer power 525Sl keeps turning off and on and beeps.

I have the exact same issue with my 525SL.
When you push in the red button - the green power light comes on for about 5 seconds = then the light goes out and the device plays a single long beep for about 5-8 seconds.

Given the dialogue here - I took out the battery and bough a brand new BB replacement battery and returned it into the unit as it should. The device continues to have the same behavior.

So it is NOT always a new battery that will fix the system.
Don't jump into spending $30.00 for a replacement.
Look into this further or you'll wind up wasting your money.

(Cyberpower 525SL) not working properly

There is no other known cause of the cycling on/off behavior aside from
a bad battery. IT is possible that some component of the battery relay
or inverter has failed. If this is the case it would not be repairable
outside of warranty.

CyberPower 325SL won't work...

NEVER mix surge protectors and UPS!!!. Doing so overloads whoever of the two gets connected to the wall. This equipment is built to be plugged DIRECTLY to the wall. Your unit just crossed it's inner battery. Take it to a recycling center, then stop on your favorite electronis shop and buy a new one.
