Riello UPS Battery Replacement
The batteries are critical to the integrity of your UPS system. Most modern UPS systems will perform and monitor short battery tests on a regular basis, however it is also essential to maintain these systems to ensure they will operate correctly when needed.
UPS Power Services can supply, install, maintain or replace a wide variety of batteries, the most common being sealed lead acid (VRLA) with a 5 or 10 year design life.
Unfortunately, no UPS battery will last forever. They all have an optimum number of charge-discharge cycles, and a design life based on optimum site conditions which are rarely met in real-life. So in fact while most batteries may have a predicted lifespan of 5 or 10 years, it’s actually best practice to replace them in year 3 or 4 (for 5-year versions) or 7 or 8 (in 10-year models).
It’s crucial to review battery performance at regular intervals. Frequently testing your UPS batteries will help maximise their lifespan, identify any cells that might require replacement, and reduce your risk of unexpected failure.
Preventative Battery Maintenance
Where possible, UPS battery replacement should be planned in advance at the appropriate point in their design life. This approach is far more cost-effective than having to replace an entire string unexpectedly which risks the possibility of damaging failure.
UPS Power Service partners with all major battery manufacturers and can source virtually any replacement cells. Batteries can be replaced on-site and your system brought back online in an efficient and pain-free manner.

Lets take a look at some frequently asked questions when it comes to UPS battery replacement and UPS battery maintenance.
Can you change batteries on any UPS system?
Do you only supply Yuasa batteries?
No, Yuasa is our prefered supplier. The level of quality from Yuasa and the warranty is exeptional in our experiance, they can supply almost any block in the UK within a day. We are a Yuasa main dealer, so can supply what we feel are the best batteries at the very best price. However if it is a specific battery you require we do have accounts with all the leading battery manufacturers.
What does VRLA stand for?
VRLA batteries work on the oxygen recombination principle. However, the recombination process is not 100% efficient. So over time, the internal pressure increases, and a certain amount of gases have to be released to maintain the ideal pressure. This is achieved with the help of one-way, pressure-sensitive valves which open when the internal pressure increases above a certain threshold and allow the excess gases to be vented. That is why these batteries are called VRLA or valve regulated lead acid batteries. Excess gases are also produced if these batteries are overcharged or discharged at rates higher than the recommended rate.

Why are UPS Batteries so Important?
It is the battery that provides the UPS with power to continue running in the event of a mains failure.
An old or badly maintained battery set could affect the autonomy time of your uninterruptible power supply and result costly downtime should you get a mains failure.
All lead acid batteries, wet or gel, are prone to natural decay and have a design life of five, ten or twelve years. This is caused by metals and acid sharing the same plastic container.
How Does Age Affect Battery Life?
Natural degrading is typically about 5% per annum, depending on the type and brand of battery. It is because of this degradation that you need to check the batteries to be sure that you will get your required and expected runtime during a mains failure. If the batteries aren’t in great condition then the autonomy time will be dramatically reduced and a planned, safe shutdown will not be achieved. Although regular maintenance and ideal environmental conditions can extend the working life of UPS batteries, they will eventually need replacing.
Do You Have Doubts About Your UPS Battery Health?
