Am I correct that the replacement APC battery "pack" for my old APC BP1100 UPS's (4) will cost me $160 each?
(I paid $149 each for these "Refurbished" UPS's way back on 15-AUG-2002.)
Current price reads like ~$75/battery+$10 for the APC interconnect dongle and sticky-tape.
I have looked at the APC pix of the RCB6. No traceable markings other than the "APC sticker." Is this battery "pack" gold-plated?
I do so think that APC wishes me to now "trade-up" my current "old" units to new product. Fine. I get it.
Still, I am a bit shocked.
Perhaps just a comment. Still..............
