Finding correct replacement battery model (RBC#) for Backup-UPS RS BR1500I (SB-12)

This was originally posted on APC forums on 5/20/2014


I have a APS Back-UPS RS model with a faulty battery, and I have been trying to find the correct battery model to replace it. This UPS unit was bought in September 2009.

When I called Schneider Electric (Singapore) to find out which battery model I should purchase, they requested a RBC number (RBC#). I have been looking for the RBC number on my APC unit as well as on the faulty battery pack, but I cannot find it.

I hope that experienced users here can give me an idea of what the correct replacement model number is.

The purchase information of the UPS unit is as follows:

APC Back-UPS RS

1500VA / 865W

Input 230V / Output 230V

Interface Port USB

Extended runtime model

Rack Height 2 U

Product: BR1500I (SB-12)

Serial Number : BB0911009747

UPC: 731304193173

I have included pictures of various numbers and stickers on the UPS unit and battery.

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Searching "OM-1332" on this forum shows that the battery pack I need could be either an RBC-32 or RBC-33.

What is the difference between the RBC-32 or RBC-33 and which one should I get?
