    APC RBC32 reviews

    Replacement Battery Cartridge #32 (Charcoal) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 66.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Term Service Although a small business operating from our home, we've used APC products for over 10 years. After using my first Back UPS R S 1000, for a year or so, I bought a second so I could put our entire home network. We don't have a lot of brown outs or complete loss of power, there have been occasions where they have occurred and the APC units have done their work admirably. We've just replaced the batteries in both units. The price was more than reasonable and the units were delivered in a few days including detailed instructions for installation. The real positive was that APC included a USPS prepaid return. Forever grateful and a proud and permanent user of APC products,

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I ordered a replacement battery for my APC BX900 UPS and it didn't fix the problem. The UPS software advised me that the battery needed to be replaced but apparently there must be another problem as welll. I installed the new battery and allowed it to charge for a day. It just cycles between online and standby continuously. Cannot find any online solutions so I guess I am out the cost of the battery. Have used APC products for many years and I am really disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable This is the second replacement battery for this UPS and my third APC replacement battery I have purchased. The process is relatively staright forward if you have the specific model number. The "flashy" model number on the front of the UPS case is NOT the model number you need to order a repacement battery. Use the model number on the UPS ID tag on the bottom/back. Delivery time is quite reasonable. The only consistant challenge is navigating to the web site to locate and print the postage paid return label. I so infrequently purchase replacement batteries (I have four APC UPS devices for computer, DSL modem, and satellite receivers) that I forget the web address for the label. APC has set that up in a sort of "need to know the secret handshake" protocol.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Keeping UPS Going I have had my APC UPS for about five years. So, the first batter lasted that long. Buying the new battery was easy to do and it was easy to install. The only thing missing, which I thought would be included, was a shipping label to recycle the battery. Some reviews indicated it was included. I was able to take it to Staples for recycling, but would have preferred sending it back to APC where I think there would be a greater incentive to recycle. All that was included was a sheet of paper telling me I could do this. Other than that, I am pleased with the product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked for only a While The order process and delivery were fine. I switched out the batteries easily. I found out that the UPS Call Tag to return the old battery required a fee unless I physically delivered the old battery to a UPS pick up point -- which I did. My biggest problem is that the APC BACKUPS after several weeks is now showing the original issue and I've had to disconnect it once again. I have only a minimal amount of equipment attached. Now I'm concerned that I will need to replace the entire unit and will have wasted the time and money spent on the replacement battery.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What Power Outage I have been using APC UPS for 20 years. I have them on everything that I want to protect and keep running when the power goes away. I currently have 10 UPS operational: two on medical gear (an oxygen concentrate and a CPAP), four on our computers and peripherals, two protect/power our HDTVs, DVR, DVD players, etc. Over the years, I have "Traded UPS" older gear for more powerful gear and they have all worked flawlessly. One evening we had a power outage and I went downstairs to inform my wife. She said "What outage" pointing at the TV and the table lamp. I just pointed at the APC UPS and she said, "Oh! This current order was for replacement batteries for my oldest APC UPS. As always, the battery changes were a snap. APC has never let me down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery Cartridge #32 This is my 2nd replacement in 3-1/2 years. My 1st replacement battery was in 2009. The original lasted almost 5 years. Overall these replacement batteries last on the average of about 3 years or more. I was told my Back-UPS XS 800 will last about 8 to 10 years of useful life. So far I am please with APC Power Backup units. Tech support was very helpful in walking me through the process to restore my battery unit when it was clicking on and off after I replace the battery. Thank you for having a replacement battery program.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Replacement - Good Battery One of my Back-UPS RS 990 was signaling a replace battery alarm periodically. I went on line, found the required replacement, ordered on line and received the battery - RBC32 APC Replacement Battery Cartridge #32 within a few days. Replacing the battery in the Back-UPS RS 990 was simple because it sits in and plugs in. I used the re-usable shipping box and return authorization to return the old battery. The whole process was simple and efficient. The battery replaced had been in service since Dec 2006 - 4 years
