Nothing too special here, just a replacement battery. I ordered it for my Smart-UPS SU1000. I tend to stick to OEM products (I find them more reliable), and that s what this is. The previous battery in the UPS died after about 5 years of use, and this replacement has worked just fine over the past 6 months.
The battery comes with a free shipping label, to be used to return the old battery for replacement. I was worried about trying to figure out where to recycle the old battery, so the free return label was much appreciated.
Installation is pretty easy. I had to look up online how to open up my UPS, but once I did that, snapping in the new battery was pretty easy. Just disconnect two wires, slide out the old battery, slide in the new battery, and reconnect the two wires.
Oh, and Amazon s free shipping is quite the deal, considering that the battery weighs close to 20 pounds.
