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.
