HC1228W for sale?

I guess I have a pair of HC1228W's for sale. I bought these earlier this year to replace the batteries in my Cyberpowersystems Power2000/1500VA CP1500 UPS. The UPS was having issues, so I tried replacing the batteries. It didn't solve the problem, the issues didn't match the symptoms of needing batteries replaced....but I tried it anyways. I suspect the UPS got damaged when I moved here to Manhattan, KS.

It was one of the UPSs that I didn't have its original box for still. It was also at the time my oldest UPS in use.

This thing originally took HC1225W's...but that battery model is now obsolete, and the HC1228W is the compatible replacement. However it is a special order item, it in fact doesn't show up anymore on my usual source.

So, I special ordered a pair of HC1228W's and now have no use for them. Only I don't know if I want bother trying to sell them on eBay or something. :**:

Batteries for Belkin F6C1500-TW-RK

Yesterday morning, I woke to find a dialog on the screen of my computer. It was asking me if I had replaced the batteries in my UPS, so it can reset the replacement date.

That's a subtle way of telling me I need new batteries. I had previously emailed Belkin about getting replacement batteries for it. They said since it had been less than 2 years since its introduction, there was no need for anybody to buy replacement batteries (since any need to replace batteries would be done as a warranty exchange) they wouldn't tell me what kind of batteries to keep on hand for it. That meant that no getting more of these units for work.

I did a quick 10-second test on the UPS, and immediately the battery capacity gauge dropped to under 50%.... It also popped back up to 100% almost immediately. Not sure how old the UPS is now...but I'm sure it is over the 2 year mark.

After googling around for a while...I found a site that in the UK that was selling replacement batteries for this UPS. It reported that it was a pair of GP1272F2. Now googling around for this model battery, I found a hit on my usual source for UPS batteries....'s number is SLA-12V7-F2. Checking my notes, I recalled that the SLA-12V9-F2 is physically the same size as this battery, but with a 9Ah rating instead of 7.2Ah....and it is the one that I've been using successfully in other UPSs that used the SLA-12V7-F2.

So, I ordered another pair of SLA-12V9-F2's....

Wonder if I can replace the batteries in the UPS hot :??:

Wonder if I should figure out what batteries the two other UPSs, that I don't yet know, use :??:

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
