The batteries in your UPS System have a generally defined lifespan, after which their performance diminishes rapidly. That’s why for critical applications, deploying healthy batteries is mandatory for proper UPS battery backup and power protection operation. Battery life is typically reported in years at +25C / +77F, but several factors can dramatically affect this figure, including but not limited to:
- Environmental factors, especially storage and operational temperatures
- Battery chemistry
- The degree to which batteries have been properly maintained
- If the batteries are routinely charged per manufacturer’s recommendations
Nova Electric offers a simple hot swap battery restoration program to address this issue, specifically designed for existing proactive customers who want to make certain that their current UPSs are fully functional for mission-critical applications.
For reference if you’re considering the Battery Restoration Program, UPS users can expect the following battery lifespans in ideal conditions, measured at +25C / +77F:
- Standard Sealed VRLA: 3-5 years
- Premium VRLA: 8 years (Cyclon or Genesis XE type)
- LiFePO4: 5 years
Higher temperatures, harsh environmental conditions, lack of maintenance, and other factors can severely reduce these figures.
