What's the right replacement battery for the BackUPS 900XS ? RBC32 or RBC5

This was originally posted on APC forums on 4/24/2010


I was browsing on Amazon and ran across a post that said the BackUPS 900 XS does not work with an RBC32 battery, that it requires an RBC5 battery. I then checked on the APC website and found two contradictory statements, as follows:

[1] The manual for the BackUPS 900 XS (web page http://www.apcmedia.com/salestools/ASTE-6Z7V73_R0_EN.pdf) says RBC32 is the proper replacement battery.

[2] The specifications for the BackUPS 900 XS (web page http://www.apc.com/products/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=BX900R&tab=models) says RBC5 is the proper replacement battery.

Which is correct ?

Dear Robert,

Your understanding is correct. The replacement battery for BX900 is RBC32, where as the replacement battery for BX900R is RBC5.

Thank you!
