What is the life span of a 12V 100AH UPS battery?

The life expectancy of a 12V 100AH UPS battery depends on the operating environment, maintenance and care, and the company’s attitude towards the old 12V 100AH UPS battery. The maintenance-free batteries used in 12V 100AH UPS batteries generally have a lifespan of 3 to 5 years. The normal life span of a UPS battery is still relatively long, so if you use it reasonably and regularly once a month, it can last 5-8 years, after which the capacity will drop significantly and you will need to consider replacing the 12V 100AH UPS battery.

How to properly use and maintain the 12V 100AH UPS battery uninterruptible power supply

Environmental requirements for the use of the 12V 100AH UPS battery

1. The UPS must be placed in a stable position, and all sides of the case must be kept a sufficient distance from the walls for ventilation.
2, UPS uninterruptible power supply should be away from heat sources, to prevent direct sunlight, to maintain normal temperature and humidity, to keep the room clean, to prevent corrosion.
3, prohibit the use of overload, in order to prolong the life of the UPS, uninterruptible power supply should not be in long-term operation under full load. Backup UPS is generally selected from 60% to 70% of the rated power of the load, online UPS is generally selected from 70% to 80% of the rated power of the load.
4, lightning is the natural enemy of all electrical appliances, attention must be paid to ensure that the UPS effective shielding and grounding protection, UPS uninterruptible power supply using a large number of CMOS integrated circuit modules and control of the CPU and other microelectronic devices, they are very sensitive to lightning electromagnetic pulse, so it is easy to be broken. Even if the UPS has effective shielding and good grounding protection, it is important to protect the power and communication lines from lightning overvoltage.

12V 100AH UPS battery maintenance precautions

1. It is forbidden to connect inductive loads to the UPS output port. When using the UPS power supply, it is important to comply with the relevant provisions of the product manual or instruction manual to ensure that the connected fire, zero and earth wires meet the requirements and that the user does not change their mutual order at will.
2. Strictly follow the correct sequence of power on and power off. Avoid sudden loading or sudden load shedding due to the load, the UPS power supply voltage output fluctuates greatly, and the UPS power supply can not work properly.
3. Frequent switching off and on of the UPS power supply is strictly prohibited. General requirements after the UPS power off, wait at least 6 seconds before turning on the UPS power supply, otherwise, the UPS power supply may enter the “start failure” state, that is, the UPS power supply into neither the utility output, and no inverter output state.
4, the general UPS battery discharge protection measures, but the discharge to protect the shutdown, the battery can be restored to a certain voltage, but this does not allow the reboot, otherwise the battery will cause over-discharge, the UPS must be re-charged before it can be put into normal use.
5, the newly purchased UPS (or UPS stored for a period of time), the battery must be charged before it can be put into normal use, otherwise there is no guarantee of standby time.
6, For UPS without long-term power failure, the UPS should be discharged every 3 to 6 months and then re-charged so as to prolong the life of the battery, otherwise the UPS host and battery may be damaged.
7, regular maintenance work on the UPS power supply, remove the dust in the machine, measure the voltage of the battery pack, check the operation of the fan and test and adjust the UPS system parameters, etc.
