Being woken up at 2am by my battery backup was no fun. My BackUPS ES 550 just wouldn't stop squealing unless I turned it off. Instead of replacing the entire unit, I purchased this replacement battery. True, it's not made by APC, but it's no less quality than the original. It's less than half the cost, and the unit works as well as it did when it was brand new.

Installing the battery is an easy process. Simply remove one phillips screw from the bottom of the unit and slide the cover off. Plug in two color-coded connectors, slide the cover back on and put the screw back in. That's all there is to it. It takes only a couple minutes.

UPDATE: 9/27/12: This battery is still going as strong as the day I bought it. I've had several power outages and my computer has sailed through them with no problems.

APC Back-UPS ES 550VA Replacement BatteryOk, I see everybody getting all shook up about the fact that this is not a "true" APC battery. I agree, it should have been labeled "replacement for RBC32" battery and not APC brand. Bad vendor, slap on the hand. You should list it correctly though. All of that drama aside here is the bottom line in my opinion; This battery (a pair if needed) will replace almost any 12V battery with the same terminal positioning and external dimensions{5.94" (151mm) by 3.7" (94mm) by 2.52" (64mm)}in a UPS and can be done by the average person with a reasonable amount of basic electrical knowledge while keeping safety in mind. First, shutdown the UPS and anything it powers and then disconnect the AC power cord from the AC source. If your battery is a pair of 12V batteries just buy two of these and take the original wiring off the original pair a batteries and transfer it to the new pair being careful to observe correct polarities and also not to accidentally create a short across the battery terminals with a tool or some other piece of metal. After you have attached the wiring as it was in the original configuration use some shipping or packing tape to hold the two batteries together in the way the original battery pair was positioned. Carefully insert the battery pair into the UPS and connect it as the original pair was connected and placed. Lastly, replace the cover to the battery compartment. My guess is this will replace up to 95% of any 2 battery, 12V pair used in UPS's requiring a rating of about 7AH or more. The only downside to this at all is that most APC brand batteries have a free disposal option included in the purchase price. So, there you have it. Now you can make a decision, I hope my input helps.

This battery is a great replacement battery for the APC ES 550. i have two of them and replaced both batteries with this product. Both appear to be working perfectly after about 30 days. So i would say save money and buy your batteries from a good vendor.

I had problems with this APC replacement battery from the day I got it. The positive and negative poles are thinner than on original APC batteries, so the wires do not fit tightly and kept coming off. After having to reconnect them several times, I finally had to tapes the wires down with duct tape. Then after about 3 weeks of use the battery died. The APC unit alarmed and the "replace battery" red led came on. Amazon has a no return policy for batteries, so I just went and purchased a new APC es550 at another store. Just to test this replacement battery, I put it in the new APC 550, and again the "replace battery" led came on. So the battery I got is obviously defective. I wrote to ecom electronics and asked for a working battery since I can't return this one. I will post again when I get their response.

UPDATE: I just received a replacement battery from ecom electronics. They responded to my post right away and I had the replacement battery within a week. For those reasons I am changing my rating from one star to 3 stars. I will install their new battery and see if it lasts longer than 3 weeks. I will post here again once I determine if the replacement battery keeps working for a reasonable amount of time.

The connection tabs are too small to connect securely to the terminals on the UPS. They fit, but barely make connection. This is no way to have a current carrying connection. Tab on left is old battery, tab on right is this battery.

This battery did work in my Back-UPS ES 550 UPS, but the little metal terminals are maybe 25% smaller than the original APC battery, so the battery leads did not fit tightly. I had to use duct tape to ensure the leads didn't slip off when inserting the battery. After that it worked fine, no issues so far and it tests out fine in the APC Powerchute monitoring application. All things being equal, the money on an off-market battery I saved was not worth the aggravation.

Have it for quite some time now and my UPS unit is running just fine. Easy to install and highly recommended.

The vendor was very prompt and helpful in ensuring I ordered the correct one for my unit. It arrived on time and well packaged.

Truly plug and play instead of plug and pray. Used to purchase new units rather than replace batteries because of the cost, but the price for this ones makes it plausible to do so.
