APC SU700US Battery Installation Guide


The SU700US backups unit is APC's Smart Ups 700 backup box. The SU700US replacement battery that we will be installing is comprised of two (2) gp1272F2 sealed lead acid batteries. These batteries are 12v 7.2 ah sla batteries manufactured by CSB battery, which in this case is the OEM apc replacement battery for the unit (and many of apc's backups units).

To begin, you must first remove the plastic face plate from the unit (where the indicator lights are located). Once this face plate is removed, you will see a small metal door secured to the unit by two small screws at the very top. Once these screws are removed, you will see that the rbc5 battery pack is connected to the unit by two wires at either end of the battery. The first wire that should always be disconnected first is the red cable leading to the positive, then the negative in order to avoid any possibility of sparking. Once these are removed, the rbc5 battery pack should just slide out of the unit.

Assuming that you have your rbc5 replacement battery ready to go, you slide the battery pack far enough into the unit so as to connect the positive spade connector, then slide the battery in the rest of the way to connect the negative. Seal up the metal door with the two screws you took out earlier (which hopefully you have not lost:) ), and replace the front plastic plate. You have successfully installed your very own su700us replacement battery!
