Installed 4-16-2015 - It fits perfectly and is a great price but my APC performance monitor says only 6 minutes of estimated battery back up time. It has worked through a couple of power flickers now but haven't had a power outage yet to see how long it will actually last. It's only been installed a little over a week now but no problems so far.

Update 5-14-2015 - APC performance monitor now says less than one minute back up power time. Had some storms yesterday (but no power outages) and computer shut down twice....battery did not provide any back up power. I do not recommend this battery....spend the extra money and get the original APC.

Update 5-17-2015 - For the record, the seller, Ace Comp Solutions has agreed to replace this battery. I give them a thumbs up and a "great seller" recommendation. Hopefully the next one will work better. I will update this to give performance review of the next battery after I receive it.

Update 5-29-2015 - I received my replacement battery a week ago. One day after installing it my APC performance monitor shows 6 minutes of back up power available. After one week it is now saying 2 minutes of back up power. My one star rating still stands.

This battery came fully charged and worked immediately in my APC backup. At exactly 6 months it failed but had a 1 year warranty. Contacted seller who prorated the battery and is sending a new one @ 1/2 price and free shipping. Sounds fair to me. I just hope this battery holds up for the full 1 year warranty at minimum. Seller public relations is good.

The works fine in my APC UPS. APC wanted 3 times the money for the same thing. The original battery did last 10 years before finally dying, but it hasn't been %100 for a while. I had forgotten how long it was supposed to last.

I recently repaired two APC ES750 UPS's which were unable to charge their internal batteries. These units were about seven years old, so the original RBC17 batteries were well past their expected lifetime. In my application, these aftermarket replacement batteries work well, although I discovered a problem with the UPS units which prevented their batteries from being charged. The ES750 UPS's both had a defective electrolytic capacitor (330 uF, 25V rating) which disrupted the charge circuit. You can measure the charging current by inserting an ammeter in series with one of the battery leads. Initial charging current (on a discharged battery) should be about 0.4 A on a working ES750. The capacitors exhibited a slight bulge at the top of the can where the vent is located, indicating electrolyte leakage, a fairly common problem with electronics. When removed from the pc board, they both measured very low on a capacitance meter. They were not shorted, just low on capacitance. Replacing the capacitors and batteries restored proper operation. Both UPS's work fine now. Hopefully they're good for another five years or so. I suspect the run time might be slightly less with the replacement 7 AH battery, but I'm willing to accept this compromise to save $ on the purchase price of the battery. One note of caution: I don't recommend repairing a UPS unless you have experience in this area. If you do, observe proper polarity when replacing the electrolytic capacitor.

I had my APC 725 UPS unit off service for a year or so, because the last time I checked, batteries were very expensive. I decided to try these batteries and was nicely surprised. The battery fits perfectly in its compartment, and the UPS provides me with about 10 minutes of battery backup (same as with the original batteries). I don't know how long it is going to last, but for the time being, it is doing its job.

Very inexpensive compared to what you have to pay for a direct replacement from the UPS manufacturer. Hard to tell just how long it will last. If it last past 3 years I will come back and edit this review.

Bought 2 for two APC UPC's that had pooped. Swapped in the new batteries and they worked good as new. No way I'm paying $50-60 for a battery from APC. If I'm paying that much, I might as well get another battery. After these go bad, then its time for a replacement UPS.

The battery arrived quickly and is working as expected. Installation was very easy and I saw no visual difference in this battery and the OEM battery. I had to run the APC PowerChute software Self-test and change the Replace Battery Date in the software before the correct amount of Estimated Battery Time would show up in the APC PowerChute Monitor System. So, you may need to go through this step as well. I've had the battery installed for about 45 days at this point.
