Why Do I Need a UPS Battery?
To understand why you need a UPS battery, you must first understand how your UPS works. A backup generator runs if the power in your area goes out so that the server can continue operating. The is done by switching to reserve power. Your UPS will then operate normally until your reserve power runs out which then triggers an alarm for you to manually switch over to generator power and then restores the original power supply when it has been restored.
This is like a battery that has been put into your computer. This is done to keep everything running if there is an outage.
There are two types of UPS batteries things that you must know about the two types of batteries. First one is lead-acid batteries which are very common in automobiles. The second type of battery is the lithium batteries.
Lead-acid Batteries: This type of battery is quite inexpensive and once it has been used, you can easily dispose of it because it contains non-toxic material that does not contaminate the environment. However, this material can leak out if you expose it to heat, so watch out for this when you are storing a lead acid battery.
Lithium batteries: Lithium batteries are different because they do not contain heavy metals like lead or mercury. They are considered to be environmentally friendly because they don't pollute the environment and they are safe to use in the presence of water. They also have a longer shelf life than regular lead-acid batteries.
How long do these batteries last?
The normal time span of using a lithium battery is between 2 to 5 years, depending on how much usage you give it and what temperature it is exposed to. The average life span of a lead-acid battery is 18 to 24 months.
One thing that you need to be careful about when working with lithium batteries is that they are very sensitive to overcharging and undercharging. The different types of UPS batteries have different voltages. You need the correct voltage in order for your UPS to function properly.
What Are The Different Types Of Batteries?
There are three main types of UPS batteries.
1.These are sealed lead acid
2.Gel and lithium.
