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)...so 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....http://www.batterymart.com'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 :??:

Evidentally the batteries for the Xantex PowerSource 400 is a pair of SLA-12V22.

And, the GS-1285U/CP1285AVRLCD will also take a pair of SLA-12V9-F2s.

Meanwhile, I still haven’t replaced the CP1500AVR….hmmm, I wonder what happened to the batteries I had bought for it….since replacing those didn’t make it work again….

Actually it was a CP1500, and it used a pair of HC1228W’s….

Not likely to buy a UPS that uses these batteries…so I might see if anybody around wants them…

Oh, good, now, you will get a power supply life, because replacement batteries always higher capacity than original battery, and cheap price.

hi Lawrence,
I just found out what happens when you ignore the “replace batteries” message for too long. The UPS dies… all of a sudden, with a big red light on one of the leds. Anyway, did you ever get your replacement batteries to work?

They worked for a while…but less than a year later the UPS kept dying instantly on the slightest blip, so I threw it out and got another CyberPower UPS.

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.
