Estimated Battery Time - Back-UPS RS 1500

This question was originally posted by Mike on APC forums on 1/19/2010


I just replaced the battery in my Back-UPS RS 1500 with a new RBC-33.

The estimated battery time is only listed as 4 minutes.

I am only using 311 watts of power.

And the funny thing is that it passes the self-test!

Is this expected behavior or do I possibly have a faulty battery, faulty UPS or both?

Thanks.
