Support Services to Maximise the Lifespan of Your Uninterruptible Power Supply Battery
Having a well-maintained, and quality uninterruptible power supply battery in place is just as crucial as having an uninterruptible power supply to start with. If there is a fault with the battery it could be just as detrimental as a power outage itself. UPS batteries also hold a significant portion of the cost of a UPS, so good maintenance and upkeep is non-negotiable.
Within this blog, we’ll dive into the lifecycle and lifespan of a UPS battery and introduce you to the services offered by Adept Power Solutions to ensure your UPS systems remain at optimal performance.
The Lifecycle of UPS Batteries
As with all batteries, a typical UPS battery's lifespan is finite but the lifespan can also vary depending on factors such as battery type, load and environmental conditions. Primarily, you can expect a UPS battery to last between 3 to 5 years, but as it ages the capacity and performance will typically gradually decline.
A brand-new battery will of course deliver maximum rated capacity and operate efficiently and reliably. As the battery ages, its capacity will diminish, the speed of which will depend on operating conditions, discharge frequency, temperature and many other environmental factors which if well looked after, can help bring longevity to the lifespan of your battery. Finally, as with all things, there will come a time when a UPS battery reaches the end of its life and it can become a liability at which point, the battery will simply need replacing.
It's crucial to understand the overall lifecycle of a battery to ensure your systems remain functioning optimally, and there are some simple things you can do to maximise your UPS battery life day to day before you need a service. There are however professional battery support services offered by Adept Power Solutions which can support battery maintenance and ensure your equipment is professionally protected.
