I am a home user with a technical background. Despite that background, it took me much longer to install than I consider reasonable. The causes: It is not clear at all that the hard, clear plastic shipping protectors on the terminals must be removed before installation! They are of such high quality that they look like permanent parts of the terminals. Combined with an overly short Red wire in my UPS unit, this had me going for some time. A small insert in the package saying that they must be removed would be very helpful. The instructions actually included have no indication that this is the first step. A separate issue is that this is the second replacement in 3 years for this unit - which actually has a very low load connected to it. My other APC unit, smaller, older, much more heavily loaded has not required a replacement batter in about 5 years ... hmmm.

Specs say "Expected Battery Life (years) 3 - 5"... my last two RBC2 only lasted 18 & 14 months respectively. Noticed warranty is only 12 months. Guess the warrantly people know more about this battery than the marketing/spec people do.

Delivery was prompt. Install went smoothly. Somewhat disappointed that the replacement did not come with a return label for recycling. Now I have to find a local place to recycle the battery.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After several years the battery in my APC UPS power supply finally pooped out. I am more than happy with the length of time, several years. I would recommend the APC UPS to anyone, great product.

We have had our APC for over 10 years and it has worked perfectly for those years. The battery usually last us 4-5 years. We have several printers, telephones modems connected to this one and has not let us down. As far as I am concerned a great product.

Unlikely that I speak for everyone, but the cost of APC units compared to others is semi-premium. Those of us who buy are obviously more interested in quality than price. Therefore, I would beg you to go back to the way it used to be, with each replacement battery including a return shipping label to recycle the old. I would happily pay a bit more for the battery, ($5-7 should cover it), to eliminate the hassle of needing to find a recycler locally. As we speak, I am staring at a box with nine dead APC batteries that I have nowhere to dispose of.
from Ukiah, CA
Lifetime is rated 3-5 years. I got 2.5 on a computer I use pretty infrequently. I paid more for the APC one, thinking it would be better than buying a cheaper on over the internet. Not so sure now...
Couldn't be easier
from San Franciso Bay Area
My APC UPS sounded off every few hours with beeps and a flashing red light to let me know it was time to replace the battery. I ordered online and the battery arrived sooner than expected. I installed it and it's been working fine since. The part I especially like, I didn't have to shut everything off to install.
