How to Put Batteries Into a CyberPower 1500AVR

By Frank Whittemore

The CP1500AVR from CyberPower is a sophisticated uninterrupted power supply or UPS. The unit connects to mid-range to high-end computer systems to provide continuous power in the event of a power failure. A battery within the unit remains at constant charge to take over for the primary power source, if it fails. The UPS also provides line conditioning to help control brownouts and power surges and displays continuous diagnostic information on an LCD screen of the front of the unit. To ensure your CP1500AVR is operating at peak performance, change the batteries when they are worn out.

Things You'll Need

  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Rubber gloves
  • Rubber-soled shoes

Step 1

Switch off and unplug all equipment connected to the CyberPower 1500AVR unit. Switch the unit off and unplug it from the power source. Put on your rubber gloves and shoes.

Step 2

Turn the unit upside down and remove the retaining screw that holds the front panel battery compartment cover in place with the Phillips screwdriver. Remove the cover by sliding it up off the unit.

Step 3

Pull the batteries from within the battery compartment. Disconnect the batteries from the connecting wires and set the old batteries aside.

Step 4

Insert the connecting wires into the new batteries, by attaching the black and red wires to the corresponding connectors on the batteries. Insert the batteries into the battery compartment.

Step 5

Replace the front panel battery compartment cover onto the unit and replace the cover retaining screw. Plug the unit in and switch it on. Recharge the CyberPower 1500AVR for eight to 16 hours until the batteries are fully charged. Plug the computer components back into the unit and switch them on.
