I was cleaning out my weight room/tech storage dump and found an old, cheap Belkin UPS with a bad battery. I decided to take it apart and look at ebay to see what it would cost to replace the battery to see if it was worth the risk, and after opening it up, I realized that physically size wise, this thing used the same size battery that I'd about for a bit bigger UPS model I'd had die on me about a year ago. The problem with that one was it had really died, and the battery replacement didn't fix it. But my question is this:
The UPS I opened up today has a 12v 7 Amp battery. The one I had bought for the other UPS is 12V 8 Amp. I assume this should be fine, but just wanted to make sure that I'm not going to burn the house down.
Next task will be to desolder the alarm off this thing. Before I got better UPS's, if the power went off it would sound like a civil defense drill up in this place. I don't plan to use this for a PC if I use. Maybe it would be good for my lower power network gear.
