Yesterday i purchased RS-1000 230V ups & after I plugged down I switched it on then I got beep sound indicating that battery is low & a continuous sound like tripping of power thattime on-line led was trying to get on but was not getting on for more than second but then I realised that I have 2 charge d ups for 8 hours then I just turned off the ups & left it for charging for more than 8 hours. When i turned on same happened. Even if the source power was on the ups was showing me on battery status & that on-line led was trying to get on but not lite continouosly & making tripping sound & beeps. No time the ups is on on-line mode. I contacted customer care & according to them I put d ups on high sensitivity mode but no use. Please help me im in big trouble now.

If the UPS BR1000-IN is not getting on mains and is toggling between on mains and on battery , you need to check two things
1. Is the input voltage and frequency is suitable for the UPS to work. UPS required 230V and 50Hz to work on mains
2. Is the socket where the UPS is connected is in good condition
If the UPS is toggling on mains and battery continuously it means that that either one of the above is the reason.
I would suggest to change the wall socket and try in different room if then also problem persists then try to set the sensitivity high and the steps for setting the sensitivity high for BR1000-In is given below,
1 Disconnect all the loads
2 Turn OFF the UPS using the front panel
3 Leave the input to the UPS ON
4 Press the ON button till all the LED flashes
5 Release and then press the switch 3 LED would flash :High Sensitivity
6 Release and then press the switch 2 LED would flash :Medium Sensitivity
7 Release and then press the switch 1 LED would flash :Low Sensitivity
Please release your hand when 3 LEDs are flashing so that the sensitivity is high.
Hope this solves the problem in the UPS.

When batteries are kept for too long without being charged, they get bad and it gets worse if the place the UPS has been kept is hot. I know in India the weather is very hot, so if this battery stood still for let's say one year, without being charged, chances are that the battery is not good anymore. You should return this unit to the store you bought it and ask for a working one or a new battery(ies).
