New batteries, RS 800 rapidly switching from AC to battery to AC

This was originally posted on APC forums on 12/2/2012


I've had nothing but trouble since I got this RS 800. First constant overloading, followed by battery swelling without fault indication, now with new batteries, it seems there's a voltage sensor problem. I just spent CHF100 on a new battery pack, and the unit is switching rapidly back and forth between AC and Battery. It's five years old, so I don't mind replacing it. But the real question is whether I'll have to eat the new battery pack, or can I buy a unit, without the battery, somewhere that uses the same pack RBC32?

Unfortunately, I don't see any current models that use this battery
