I got a replacement battery for my UPS: APC XS 1000 (white, older model)
http://www.apc.com/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=BX1000

Edit: I just finally found it on the companie's site after I made this post (kept getting linked to the newer, black model)

However, the specs on the battery are a bit different.

On the new battery, the max initial current is over 2 amps and is 1.4A on the old one.
Cycle use on the new one is 14.4v-15v and 14.1v-14.4v on the old one.


Will these differences change anyting?

Any advice on disposing of the old one?


The old battery is OM-1339.
This is the new one. http://www.amazon.com/APC-RBC32-Replacement-Battery-Cartridge/dp/B00094OX2S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1346266861&sr=8-1&keywords=om-1339


Note: the pictures I find online for the OM-1339 do not match what I have. The kind of battery it has is the same kind as what is on amazon.

    New one will work fine. It will be capable of handling current and voltage delivery that would've overloaded your old battery. Google up your city/county resources for battery recycling. If your city/county has no facility or nowhere to direct you then you may have to treat this like hazardous materials (like used oil).
