APC BR24BPG Back-UPS Pro External Battery Pack For 1500VA Back-UPS Pro models

Customer Reviews

There was hunks of plastic bouncing around inside the device.
B King
They could have designed it so that the batteries slid out for easy replacement like they do on the master UPS unit.

Worked as advertised, extended my run time by 50% in the event of power failure.

This battery pack contains four 12v 9ah batteries. The batteries are model CSB HR 1234W F2. This battery pack is not made so that the batteries can be easily replaced by the user like the main UPS unit that it connects too. This is disappointing. They could have designed it so that the batteries slid out for easy replacement like they do on the master UPS unit. But you can still easily replace the batteries with a little work. Although you might break off a small plastic tab or two on the front cover in the process but it won't matter or hurt anything. Presumably your two year warranty has expired before you need to replace the batteries so you will have nothing to lose.

1. Remove the 6 screws on the back of the unit.
2. Pry off the front cover.
3. Lay unit on it's side so that the 3 screws on the front are facing up.
4. Remove the 3 screws on the front of the unit.
5. Slide the cover towards the back of the unit to remove it.
6. Disconnect the leads plugged into the F2 terminals on the batteries.
7. Remove batteries.
8. Insert new batteries and reconnect the leads.

When I plugged the unit into my BR1500G UPS it basically tripled my estimated runtime per the PowerChute software. Which is exactly as expected since the BR1500G contains two batteries and the external battery pack contain four additional batteries. My reported runtime is now 96 minutes with 233 watts draw. I found no fan inside this external battery.

The BR1500G contained 2 Kung Long WP1236W batteries. 12V 9ah 36W. Made in Vietnam. This external battery pack contained 4 CSB HR 1234W F2 batteries 12V 9ah 34W.

Still rating it 5 stars. Although I'm disappointed about difficulty to replace batteries when the time comes.

This item was purchased to go with its counterpart, the APC BR1500G. In my application, the BR1500g was backing up my computer, 2 printers, a modem, monitor, router, and an hdmi switch. With the load measured on the unit, it was providing 63 minutes of backup power. Upon connecting the APC BR24BPG, and after the battery pack was fully charged, the backup time was now indicated to be, with the same load, 262 minutes. Since the unit has been on continously now for about two months, I felt I could now write this. Some people have stated the fans in the BR1500G are too noisey. I guess it's all in human perspective. My system is in a 7' x 9' room with nothing other than the computer equiptment, and I feel, more than tolerable. The ONLY time you even hear the fan(s) are when the batteries are charging, which happens very infrequently. When you consider the protection it provides for your computer and the backup time it provides, especially for the cost, it is MORE than tolerable.

I live is a rural area, and we lose power for a few hours a few times per year. My main rig is connected to a BackUPS RS 1500, and although large, isn't large enough to power the PCs, phones, and routers for extended periods of time. When I connected my new BR24BPG battery pack to my UPS, the estimated run time jumped from 30 min (1/3 load) to 120 min (1/3 load). The battery pack appears to have shipped fully charged. This will (hopefully) provide the runtime that I need the next time the power goes out. One of these days I'll get a generator, but this will suffice in the meantime. I should note that this model supersedes an older model (can't remember the model number) with a beige case that matches my BackUPS RS 1500. It doesn't explicitly say anywhere that this will work with older UPSs that support external battery packs, but it does. They use the exact same connector and have the same electrical specs.

** update 8/20/2012 **
The external battery pack adds much-needed runtime to my system. However, I discovered something important about this unit after consulting with APC technical support. After I received the unit I looked through the documentation that it came with (useless) to find the replacement battery type for it. I couldn't find this information anywhere, so I contacted APC. It turns out that the batteries in this unit AREN'T USER REPLACEABLE, something that I'd wish I knew prior to purchasing it. It may be possible to replace them even if you're not supposed to, but I haven't (yet) opened the unit to answer this question for myself. Although I have been using APC UPSes for over 20 years and think they are well made, not explicitly stating this fact is shady, to say the least. No where I've looked did I find this fact prior to purchasing the unit. I am updating this review to hopefully inform others of this prior to their purchase, as I feel that this is a deal-breaker when deciding what to buy. I have removed 2 stars from the review as a result.

I set this up about a month ago in conjunction with setting up the main unit, and wanted to have a good period of time to at least try it out before I created the review. Overall, I think this is great - the rumors of all of the fan noise of the main unit (also commented on by others) is true, but when this backup battery was setup and charging the fan didn't run. Strange.

First off, once you open up the main Amazon packaging and attempt to open up the box that the unit is in I'd highly recommend you being on a carpeted or softer surface - this thing is pretty heavy, and the last thing you want to do is have it fall while sliding out of the box and putting a big divot in a wood floor, etc. In other words, you may need a helper as this is a little heavy.

Setup is a snap - you essentially set the backup right next to the unit and plug it in. In the month I have had this setup, the power has gone out due to a storm twice - I ran my computer, two monitors, a scanner, and an external drive off of the backup for 2.5 hours before I felt like it was getting a little risky and started shutting things down. I'm not sure how long I really could have gone - no warnings of low power and the indicator on the display still showed a lot of juice, but who wants to take that ind of chance?

This overall setup (with the main unit) is fairly pricey for home use, but I'd rather not take a risk with a cheaper product that won't last as long as I have been burned before.
