Generally, the battery life of a UPS may vary a lot, but is usualy between 2 and 4 years. It will be influenced by:

  • Quality of electricity in your area. The most outages, over-voltage, under-voltage, etc. there is, the shorter the battery will last.
  • Quality of the UPS. High quality UPS have additional features to protect the battery like AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulation) that will kick in mild under/over-voltage to avoid using the battery. Low quality/Entry-level UPS don't have this feature and will just switch to battery.
  • Quality of the battery. Some battery will last longer than others caused by the way they are made.
  • UPS load. The more the UPS is loaded, greater will be the load on the battery during an outage, reducing its life expectancy. The UPS should not have a load higher than 70%.
  • Storage time of the battery before being installed. A battery performance starts to decay from the time it is manufactured. So, longer the battery stays on a shelf in the factory or at the distributor, shorter its usable life will be.
If you are in an area with a lot of electricity problems, I suggest you simply replace the UPS for a high quality one and maybe over-size it a little to lighten the load on the battery. As an example, you may look for an APC Back-UPS RS (this is the one I am using), but there are other great UPS on the market.

On the other hand, if the electricity in your area is quite clean with very few problems, you may try replacing the battery. However, this is not a garanty since the problem may also come from the charging components in the UPS.

Hope this helps.

My battery will not recharge anymore. It's 8 years old but hasn't been used in 7. Is there anyway to revive the battery or can you get a replacement?

Hi, once a battery in such a device has run down it is usually necessary to replace it unfortunately. The various types of rechargeable batteries have different charging characteristics, the old ni-cads are better in some ways than li-ion units but they all have a fairly finite life span. They can be obtained and replaced if you can access the unit(s) .....Ebay might be able to help with replacements. Also...Radioshack in the US and Maplin in the UK may be able to assist

Why is acer 3680 2682 not charging

Because it is an old model (end of service life and not supported anymore) and the battery possibly not holding any charge and needs replacing, i think this works ok on just the charger without battery.

5 year old sedona has low mileage completely dead. What is expected life of battery?

There is no set life expectancy

My wifes lincoln dies at 4 years every time

She had a new cadillac that never made 1 year

I never get less than 8 or 9 years out of a battery
35 years running

If you do not buy the most expensive battery,the one with
the most cca rating,& it has to be completely sealed on top,
not look sealed & have caps that don't come off,then 4 to
5 years is about it

The battery on my 2007 Xterra just died. Is there a possibility of some sort of issue other than the battery being dead? Its only 3 years old.


There are possibilities regarding battery become dead and can't be charge anymore.

The first one would be the battery has a life expectancy of 1.5 years to 2 years.

The battery if less than a year and died, that will be a manufacturers fault, where the battery might have some defects when it was manufactured.

The battery died less than a year can be attributed to overcharging of electricity from your alternator.

Your lucky your battery lasted for 3 years!

Hope that clears up your problem!

Doesnt work anymore- when connected no lights appear- do they have replaceable batteries- about 4-5 years old

Yes they do, around the age you are at is the design life of this type of battery pack, check with your dealer or there should be info re service in your manual .

Batteries are always live, and are very dangerous, so unless you know what you are doing do not try this yourself. If you get it wrong you will be buying a new UPS.

Hope this helps

My toshiba laptop computer has very short battery life when it is not plugged in. It will also shut off quite frequently at times and will take a while to restart (it will turn on but it takes a few tries...

How old is the battery? Most laptops and notebooks only have a 3 year battery life, and if you have run it down too far, or never ran it down at all, the life can be even shorter than that. With nicad they say it is best to use them until they stop working. But lithium batteries are best kept topped up I hear. If the batter is over 2 years old, time to replace I think.

Low Battery life on Acer Aspire

I would first make sure that the AC is working. If the computer works on AC then it should be fine. I have had several batteries that lasted only a year. If you leave it plugged in all the time, that will do it. It is best to charge it and then use it on battery several times a week. Hope this helps some :>)

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...

Since this is now some twelve years old, it has probably reached the end of its working life.
