My UPS is not recognizing that a battery is connected. I tested the batteries individually and all four tested between 12.95v-13.30v. When I power on the UPS while connected to utility power, the UPS is able to run and power devices just fine, but, it does not recognize that a battery is connected. When I turn on the UPS while not connected to utility power, the UPS recognizes the battery temporarily, says it's charged 98% and has a 4 hour run-time, then the UPS turns off.
Is this a battery related issue? Or is the UPS toast?
So I got my hands on another SMX1500 and tested the battery on that one. Looks like the battery appears to be the issue here. I tested a good battery in the problem UPS unit and it worked without issues.
Good to know. My SMT1000 is intermittently saying that the "battery is connected incorrectly" and then a few seconds later it says every thing is fine. Even though the battery is less than a year old I may replace it just to be sure.
