I want to point out that the invoice that came with the order clearly stated they purposely sent UB1280 batteries. This is not indicated anywhere in the item description and shows it was not a shipping error.
A follow-up on my original review. Three weeks have now passed and still no response from the seller, so I have filed a claim with Amazon. I have bought hundreds of items from Amazon Marketplace sellers and this is the first time I have had to file a claim.
First, the battery is great, and works just fine. I have an identical product ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0073XD78Y/ ) from this vendor, but sold under a different title (for google, I'm sure). It is true that these are 8Ah batteries and not the 9Ah that came with the UPS -- the vendor needs to correct that in his description.
Second, the seller has been responsive (same day, late afternoon), and even willing to replace the product if bad. But I didn't need to replace the product -- I just needed to understand that there is more to installing the new battery than plugging it in.
Since I haven't seen anyone else mention this on the other reviews, and some of the problems reported would likely be CAUSED by this, I felt I had to report my experience.
I read the negative reviews -- many that reflect my _initial_ experience. I bought the APC Back-UPS XS 1500 Replacement Battery Set anyway because it was less than half the price of the name brand. It turns out that, at least in my case, those negative reviews would have been unfair categorizations -- and some of those writers may have been a bit too quick to judge.
If you connect up the new battery, fire up the UPS, and expect it to work correctly, you will be in for a surprise. You MUST update the "REPLACE BATTERY DATE" for the unit by using the PowerChute Software from APC before it will work correctly. This is especially true if your old battery was completely or almost completely dead.
The APC Back-UPS XS 1500 is a sophisticated battery system. Like most systems, it needs some info to give accurate predictions -- for instance, it needs history. It builds that history over time -- starting from when you set the "REPLACE BATTERY DATE.Read more ›
Update: Changing the review from 5 stars to 1 star. Originally received in January 2013. Worked perfectly until June 2013. Batteries suddenly stopped working, and APC UPS unit would no longer recognize them. Reinstalled original old batteries, and unit powered up, but with only about 5 minutes of backup time. Have tried numerous times to reinstall these new batteries, but APC unit believes that there are no batteries present.
Contacted seller. Batteries are guaranteed for one year, and all I had to do was return them - at my cost - and they would evaluate them. If bad, they would replace them - if not, they would return them to me. Seems fair - except that the shipping cost to send them back is almost as much as I paid for the batteries. So, I'm still trying to decide if it's worth it to pay the return shipping cost, or try to find another source for the batteries. Meanwhile, I have reinstalled the original batteries, and have a few minutes of backup time.
Update 3/2/14 - purchased a different brand from a different suppler. So far, these batteries are working perfectly.

Exact size, power rating, and terminal placement. The terminals are just slightly narrower than those on the original battery but this is not an issue. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Howard Waters
