This was originally posted on APC forums on 2/9/2012


I just bought a new UPS BR1500G, and when i opened the battery compartment i can see loads of scratches on both sides of the battery. Is their a chance i got some used battery ?

@Chrisri30

You mean if there is a white sticker in the UPS body, then that is refurbished/used? Same goes with the battery?

Is there a white sticker with a model/serial # on it(the UPS and the battery)? The battery may have one, especially if it was used but the UPS definitely will.

no, every UPS has a white sticker with the UPS model and serial number. sometimes the battery will have one of its own.
