    APC RBC2 reviews

    Replacement Battery Cartridge #2 - RBC2 Replacement Battery is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 152.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well but I wish... There is no question that the replacement battery cartridge works. It does! I wish that the connector clips were easier to disconnect. One was very stubborn to disconnect. Having the packaging include the return of the old battery is great. I considered upgrading to a new UPS, but the web site function to figure out which is appropriate is not easy. APC could have software that would check my configuration, recommend replacements, and tell me how much extra capacity each option would provide. Since I could not figure that out, I simply bought another replacement. You can't go wrong with that choice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Improve Instuctions 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.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Short lifespan Have gone through many, many of these replacement batteries, as I own 3 APC BackUPS Pro 500 UPS units. I have found these batteries to have a short lifespan -- about 2 years. Further, the low battery warnings on these UPS's do not reliably signal the end of life. I have had batteries that were being reported as OK suddenly drop the load on a power-out condition before my software could shut down my equipment. The positive about this product is that it comes with a prepaid return label to send the dead battery to recycling. But, frankly, for the price, I expect that.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing performance My experience has been similar: after my latest replacement of two of these batteries, one failed at 20 months and the other at 21 months. These were APC -branded replacements, not some other vendor.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Old Batteries 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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from RBC2 batteries don't last 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Installation Replacing the battery was a piece of cake. Very easy installation. No problems whatsoever.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery replacement An APC product is the only product I trust to protect my computer, sewing machines (which cost more than $10,000 each!) and other electronic devices from power surges. We get power outages a lot due to living in a neighborhood with lots of trees. It is called "The Liveable Forest" except when the wind blows down limbs and trees onto power lines. Since installing APC surge protectors, we have not lost one device. Prior to using APC, we lost many devices and the hassle with the insurance company was a nightmare. Thanks APC for a great product.
