My BackUPS does a daily load test. The first indication that batteries are dead is when it tries to move the load to the battery and the alarm starts screaming bloody murder.

Is it a BackUPS Pro, by any chance? They sort of straddled the two model lines and had some features I normally associate with SmartUPS units. I have some older BackUPS 300, 600, and 900 units, and they don't do load tests.

Definitely agreed. Sealed lead-acid batteries are cheap, and most battery outlets will happily make you up a "pack" if your UPS is big enough to have more than one battery hot-glued together and make sure you have the correct tabs/connectors to install it in any UPS you might have.

Package tape also does a pretty good job of making "packs" out of multiple batteries. You can fold over the end and leave it hanging as a handle to help get the pack out for replacement, next time.
