You can get an old ups with bad batt. cheap,take out bad batt,hook yours in,or get a small battery charger(2/10 amp),an inverter(about a 1000watt),plug in charger, hook to batt.,then connect inverter to batt,plug computer into inverter,turn on inverter and you should be good, keep in mind all inverters are not same,get one at a computer store that will handle what your computer draws(watts), if your ups is good and you're trying to expand batt. capacity, the batts. in the ups are not lead/acid,so it's not a good idea to connect different types and sizes or an old batt. to new one,chargers are different too,what I described at top is basically a ups

    auto batteries are not deep cycle batteries, deep discharges damages them,keep doing your research,you'll get it done, It's hard to put it all down in a few paragraphs, the inverter sine waves are different,you' might want to run an inverter with modified sine wave for proper computer function,chargers are made to charge a specific type of batt.(lead/acid, gel, NMd,AGM,etc.), match your components, I hope this helps and isn't too confusing,

You may be able to do this but it may NOT charge the external battery, you will have to see.... Anyway simply connect the battery up to the inside terminals Red- Red Black - Black.. with suitable wire & fittings make sure you have no shorts etc. ya good to go.

Apc es 500 making a buzzing sound when plugged in


Hi,

Sounds like it could be a bad battery connection or the unit is damaged at the internal components level - probably the charging inverter. You can replace your UPS using APC's Trade-UPS Program: http://buy.apc.com/commerce/storefronts/tradeups/tradein.aspx?storefrontcode=apcetu&countrycode=us&languagecode=en&tradeups_id= Make sure to pay attention to the country/region before you start filling out your information -- the link send you to the USA country.

We also sell them -- the direct replacement unit is a BK500BLK.... $116.70 your price not including shipping. We ship anywhere in the USA.

Apc beeping twice every 2 seconds


The battery inside the APC is "weak", and the "beep" is telling you to replace the battery inside the APC, or, maybe cheaper, to buy a new APC.

APC external Backup battery is not working plz


It may just need a new battery. The UPS will do a self test on the battery when you turn it on. It may have tried to read the battery and the result came back as "failed". The batteries last about 3-5 years, even less if you live in an area with bad power. The batteries are very easy to change. You can buy replacements at www.batteryinternational.com/apc-backups-es-be350es-ups-battery-ups-batteries-f1.html

APC UPS no power


The unit might have a dead battery, blow fuse, or a bad board.
Your best bet is to talk to an APC rep. Worst case, APC has a trade in program, and can give you a discount on a new one.
Good luck.
