idiot light meanings and battery replacement
By asking, we all learn and you get points. I have an APC Smart-UPS 700 Uninterruptible Power Supply. I could look this up for myself but then only I would know the answer. I'm a firm believer in Uninterruptible Power Supplies. I've had this one about eight years. It's starting to beep at me a couple of times a day. Probably means I need to replace one of the batteries. Question, should I replace only a bad one or both. How do I tell which one is bad? There are four rows of lights, and eight symbols along with test buttons. It really looks impressive and would be even better if I knew what they meant. I did find the replacement batteries from my battery wholesaler and even at wholesale they are not cheap. Finally a question from me that is answerable ;-) Also what to do with the expended batteries.
