Like we has said earlier, the battery is easy to fit, just follow these simple steps
Shut down all the devices that you have behind the UPS, then remove from the power, unplug from the wall socket.
Turn the device on its back and you will see a small door with a button that will be clearly marked for you to depress and slide open, then tip up the case and catch the battery as it falls out, there will be two cables attached, a black and red, just put those on to the new battery, sometimes they get get dispatched with a plastic white cover, remove this first, put the battery back in the case and slide the door shut, making sure it clips back into position, and you are done, the whole job will take no more than a couple of minutes to finish.
We would recommend that your power up the UPS without any load to begin with, this gives the battery a chance to become fully charged first and resets the device.
The battery we supply is valve regulated and safe to lay on its side as is required, its also absorbed glass mat technology
