smell coming from my Backup?

This question was originally posted by Charles on APC forums on 11/22/2020

I bought an APC Back-Ups Pro BR1500MS in March of 2018.  I have recently noticed a strange smell in my computer room. I have tracked it back to possibly be coming from by APC.  I have read some random stuff on the internet about others having weird smells coming from their APCs as well.  Lately I have had a reoccurring headache and sore throat quite often.   I am wondering if the battery is not making me sick.  Anyone else had this issue?
