Old XS 1000 VA UPS needs new batteries. Better to replace batteries or UPS?

This was originally posted on APC forums on 2/4/2011


My 7 year old Back- UPS XS1000 is in need of new batteries again. With all the new UPS features on new $120 UPSes, I'm wondering if its worth recycling the whole UPS and buying a new model rather than spending $60 on new batteries for my current unit.

Would this be worthwhile, or should I stick with my tried and true UPS and get new batteries?
