How To Replace The Battery In A BBP-425CS-SSW-LI Or BBP-625CS-SSW-LI Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

Replacing the battery or batteries in an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) can prolong the life of the unit while minimizing costs. Sealed lead acid batteries are widely available and are fairly inexpensive, especially compared to replacing an entire uninterruptible power supply. If the UPS is still working, but just doesn’t have the backup time it once had, a battery replacement may be the best bet.

Before you start, make sure that you have the right battery. In this instance, a 12 volt, 7.2 amp hour sealed lead acid battery is required. Also, disconnect the unit from external power and all attached devices or equipment (computers, monitors, 3D printers, lab equipment, etc.).

Step 1: Flip the uninterruptible power supply (UPS) over and remove the 4 screws located on the bottom.
