To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I used this to replace a battery in my UPS. It did not fit even though it was listed as a replacement for the make and model of my UPS. I had to cut and modify the UPS case to make it fit. It worked fine after but I was not happy with the result.
Before buying this, I called Cyber Power tech support to verify that a bad battery was indeed the issue with our nearly decade old battery backup. The old battery wouldn't hold on our projector, or even a single 60wat light bulb for even a second anymore. But there was absolutely no indication that it was bad or even weak that I could tell. The support rep agreed that the battery being worn out was the most logical assumption, but said he couldn't say for sure without ruling it out first. He said they don't sell replacement batteries direct, at least not anymore. But he confirmed that this listing on amazon was a legit authorized replacement battery. In fact, he indicated that amazon was currently the only place to procure replacement batteries for their products.
Obviously replacing the battery was much cheaper than buying a whole new unit. So we gave it a try, and luckily that seems to have resolved our problems. The power hasn't flicked off when running the DLP projector yet, but I pulled the plug with a lamp running three 60w incandescent bulbs, and the new battery carried the load fine, unlike before.
I can't speak for product longevity, as we haven't had it very long yet. It's value is great, relative the cost of a new unit. Though prices on amazon fluctuate so wildly, it's hard to qualify that better either. As for installation, it's pretty easy to replace and came with instructions to do so for a surprising variety of different Cyber Power models. But be careful sliding the new battery in. The positive connector doesn't have the same protective shield that the original battery had. As such, it (both connectors for that matter) can easily bend backwards, if forced. When everything is aligned correctly, the battery will slide in with minimal effort, aside from that related to it's heft.
I purchased a few of these together, and I just installed the last one; it's been two years between the order and the installation, and the battery seemed to be in fine shape. I'm impressed that it was still good after a couple of years.
Having replaced some of them, however, in my CP1000PFCLCD, the installation is tricky; while it is easy to get the old one out and hook up the new one, getting the new one to go back in is difficult; I usually have to make several attempts... but that's more a reflection on the Cyberpower model, and not the battery.
I really wish that the battery had a strap or some way to pull it out when it's time to change it.
My UPS / AVR1000 started acting very strangely. With a power surge it would loose power, beep and caused my computer to crash. Because of this I would recommend your Personal power protection software to schedule a test every month. After that I looked over a number of options for battery replacement. Pretty straight forward and some are a little less expensive than this one but not by much. This replacement dropped right in and after a 6 hour charge time it worked well. I might add that the battery capacity monitor indicated that the battery was full when I powered the UPS back up so they might come fully charged. Not totally sure though. I will give a 6 month evaluation update when the time comes.
I was going to buy a 3rd party brand, but the price on this one was almost the same price. I compared it to the original and it was the exact same brand and model, so I know what to expect. The original lasted almost 5 years and I suspect this will last that long. With a 3rd party battery, the longevity is questionable.
Absolutely the cheapest way to replace UPS batteries. Installation was a bit difficult because you have to reuse the sticky tape from the original two batteries and it has to be perfectly aligned to get two replacements back into the UPS. Will have to see about longevity.
