Lead Acid Battery Replacement

In the realm of mission critical applications, more often than not, it is a lead acid battery that provides backup power for the uninterruptible power supply it is supporting.  The two predominant types are VRLA (Valve Regulated Lead Acid) and VLA (Vented Lead Acid).  If you are simply interested in replacing existing batteries with more of the same, you'll need to know what batteries you have now.  The section below will help you identify the batteries that are currently installed in your cabinet.

How to Identify Existing Battery Cabinet & Type

Information Included on a Battery Cabinet Label

If you purchased your battery cabinet from us, the label on the interior of the cabinet door circled in the photo below provides the necessary information for purchasing replacement batteries.  The image on the right shows a close-up of a representative label inside your battery cabinet.  Notice that the model number on the label identifies the pertinent specs for the batteries in your current cabinet.

In the event that you are not sure from whom your battery cabinet was purchased, it may still bear a similar type label containing the information above.  When the battery cabinet can be safely accessed, either take a photograph of the label or make a note of all of the information contained on it.  If the label is missing or not legible, taking a photo of a battery and its label will be helpful as well.  Additionally, the number of the batteries in the cabinet is useful information.

The battery shown at the left is a VRLA, which is a sealed battery and therefore can be mounted in various orientations.  There are two types of VRLA batteries in the market today:  AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) and Gel.  We see many more applications of AGM than Gel in the mission critical market.

Important Material Handling Compliance

Batteries that are being replaced need to be disposed of properly in accordance with EPA guidelines.  Since they contain hazardous materials, it is unlawful to toss them into refuse that will end up in a landfill.  We would be happy to assist you with the disposal of your lead acid batteries.  Please feel free to contact us for more information. In addition, we recommend a review of your battery manufacturer's Safety Data Sheet with respect to disposal/recycling recommendations.  Please see links below for SDS sheets for batteries that we supply.
