The cost to replace the cells is not economical as our company has looked into this. OVer time even a battery that has not been used that offten will stop holding a charge. Cost for a replacement battery online is about $125-$150. You maybe able to find one cheaper on ebay but be careful as some of them don't work for very long and have very limited warranty.

The problem will be in the battery in the unit. After 3 years the battery will be un chargeable the same as in the car. Batteries are available from most good battery shops . Take the unit in so that they can match it.

The battery backup is beeping intermittently, but the power is not fluctuating. Does the battery backup require a new battery???

If it's more than 3-4 years old chances are the batteries need replacement. Typical lifespans are 3-5 years on most batteries.

Has started to beep whenever items plugged into

If it's more than 3 years old, you probably need new batteries.

If the beep started after plugging anything additional into the UPS, you may be in an overload state, and the beep is telling you that it's choosing to beep and not function as intended rather than smoking itself. Try unplugging a piece or two from it and see if the beep goes away. If not, probably just you're batteries giving out due to old age, they'll only give you 3-5 years.
