UPS battery replacement

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, 

My UPS battery has decided to no longer supply power and began to bulge. I've tried searching for the same one online but I'm getting confused with all the battery codes

The battery I currently have is a Kung Long WP7.2-12 12V 7Ah Sealed Lead Acid Battery.

When I search, loads of results for the battery but as an unavailable product & I'm being steered to a 
Yuasa - NP7-12 AGM S65-12V 7.0Ah - Sealed Lead Acid Rechargeable Battery.

Is NP the same type as WP? I don't want to order one and have my UPS explode when it tries to charge the new battery. 

The UPS is quite old as it stands but it's never let me down, until now of course, and I would prefer to replace the battery as it's cheaper than buying a whole new UPS. 

Any advice would be great

I used to use a company in Stockport for my replacement batteries.

Great. Thanks. 

 

I'll order a couple as I have another UPS of a similar age.

Yuasa or yucell ?

Yuasa

 

Should be £17 something but my sister gets discounts via work. Different products attract different discounts. Think it worked out at near 16% for the batteries.
