Back-UPS ES 750

This was originally posted on APC forums on 1/18/2012


My 4 year 2 month old APC Back-UPS ES 750 using Powerchute 2.0 Firmware revision: 841.I2 .D will only charge to 98% and after being on for about 30 mins goes down to 91% and always says charging (see attached). Windows 7 Home Premium. I have un/reinstalled the software but I did not let the battery run down. Can this be a false reading? or Do I need a new battery? I have read in other posts that I may have to recalibrate the unit, I will do this if I have to but if a false reading I will probably just ignore. Also if it's always saying charging is that affecting my electric bill with it using more? THE APC website says my model # is invalid, I do see other APC 750's but is the Back-UPS ES 750 just a old model? I can get an entire new unit for $80 on Amazon.

The BE750G is the replacement for the BE750BB. We have not made the "bb" in a while so we would of course recommend the "G" version.

I have not yet replaced the battery and I do realize that I may need to after 4 years. I am going to try the updated software (thanks for that link) will it install OVER the older version or should I uninstall the old first? THE website says my exact model # is invalid, will any 750 model battery fit? such as:
http://www.apc.com/tools/upgrade_selector/index.cfm OR is my model# old? I am asking because as I stated I can get a brand new unit for $80. in the link above enter: BE750BB as the model #, will THAT one fit?

Have you replaced the battery since you've had the ups? Our batteries do have a lifetime of 3-5 years so you may just need a new battery.
I'd also recommend using the latest software in case the software is reporting it wrong.

Well I installed the latest PowerChute software. I do like the new features and it finally disabled the native Windows power alerts. It IS still reading 98% charging and does not seem to go above that. It passes the self test. Although I do plan to get a new battery or entire unit this year some time IF it's saying 98% charging is this actually charging all the time and running up my power bill?

Ok thanks will do. In the mean time IS it ACTUALLY charging all the time running up my electric bill? It does say 98% Charging. (see attachments below) Will any 750 Battery fit my model listed OR am I better off just getting a new unit since mine is older? APC web site lists a battery for Unit APC Model #: BE750BB for $69 but I can get a APC BE750G New for $85. Is the APC BE750G a newer/better unit?
