Title:

idiot light meanings and battery replacement

Text:

By asking, we all learn and you get points. I have an APC Smart-UPS 700 Uninterruptible Power Supply. I could look this up for myself but then only I would know the answer.  I'm a firm believer in Uninterruptible Power Supplies.  I've had this one about eight years.  It's starting to beep at me a couple of times a day.  Probably means I need to replace one of the batteries.  Question, should I replace only a bad one or both.  How do I tell which one is bad?  There are four rows of lights, and eight symbols along with test buttons.  It really looks impressive and would be even better if I knew what they meant.  I did find the replacement batteries from my battery wholesaler and even at wholesale they are not cheap.  Finally a question from me that is answerable ;-)  Also what to do with the expended batteries.
