SmartUPS 700-Battery Charge Lights Blinking-Powerchute Report Inconsistent

This was originally posted on APC forums on 5/31/2011


I have a SmartUPS 700 with serial connection to computer and new batteries as of October 2010 running Powerchute BE 8.0.1.609 and Windows 7 Professional. All 5 battery charge lights are on but blinking. Powerchute reports Device Status:Battery Discharged but also reports under Battery Charge: 100%. UPS load is 20.2%. Line Voltage and Output Voltage are the same at 124.1. Battery Voltage is 27.5. Runtime remaining is 3 minutes. Any idea what's going on.

Hi Gemeng,

Are you using a genuine APC battery? Do you have the model and serial number by any chance?

The link below should give you an idea of what might cause the battery charge to blink on a Smart UPS.
