  1. For want of a better group to post this in (suggestions welcome):

    Does anyone have suggestions as to reasonably priced replacements for the
    batteries in APC UPSes? The pack in my Smart-UPS1500 looke very much like
    2 motorbike batteries glued together (though I have not found any info on
    characteristics).

    Has anyone ever tries using motorbike batteries in the UPS? Would there be
    any compelling reasons (incompatibilities, dangers etc) to not try that?
    If not, any tips one should remember when trying this?

    regards

    Yes they can be replaced but make double sure that the new batteries are of
    the MARINE type or they won't last long.
     
  3. I expect you want "Deep Cycle" batteries, rather than "Marine"
    (although many marine/RV batteries are deep cycle).
