Most of the time the VRLA batteries in UPS units will rarely if ever leak even at their EOL stage.
Only the really really cheap ones from China.

There are actually good battery dealers nearby myself. I can get Japanese batteries for most UPS units much much cheaper than a UPS.

My APC 1300 XS , I got its replacement batteries for $19.23 each *needs two*. The same UPS to buy would have been $200 :)

I have had some UPS batteries in the bigger KVA units leak though. Makes a mess.
Baking Soda FTW.

I would rather believe and find god doesn't exist than to not believe and find that he does.
