What is the expected life of UPS battery?
Most APC battery in single-phase UPS should last 3 to 5 years.
Here are some guidelines to ensure optimal life expectancy of UPS battery:
- Keep your UPS in a cool, dry location with plenty of ventilation. Ideally, the temperature where you UPS is kept should not exceed 24°C. The optimum operating temperature for a lead-acid battery is 24°C. Elevated temperature reduces longevity. Every 15°C rise in temperature will cut the battery life in half.
- Perform runtime calibrations on your UPS only once or twice a year. Calibrations can decrease the life expectancy of your battery significantly.
- Do not store a battery for an extended period of time. New battery can be stored for 6 to 12 months from the date of purchase. After this period, the battery should be use or it will lose a great deal of its charge.
- Try not to exceed 80 percent of a UPS’s rated capacity due to the reduction in runtime. In the event of power failure, a UPS loaded to full capacity will drain and discharge its battery quickly, in turn lessening the life expectancy.
