To replace the internal battery, proceed as follows: 
The typical battery lifetime is 3-6 years (depending on the number of discharge cycles and operating
temperature). A replacement battery can be ordered over the phone from APC, or the battery can be ordered
on-line from the APC web site (http://www.apc.com, a valid credit card is required).
Note:  Replacing the battery is a safe procedure. However, small sparks may occur
during the process. This is normal.
When ordering, please specify Battery Cartridge RBC2 (Back-UPS 350/500) or RBC17 (Back-UPS 650).

Transfer Voltage and Sensitivity Adjustment (optional)
In situations where the Back-UPS or connected equipment appears too sensitive to input voltage, it may be
necessary to adjust the transfer voltage. This is a simple task requiring use of the front panel pushbutton. To
adjust the transfer voltage, proceed as follows:
1. Plug the Back-UPS into the utility power source. The Back-UPS will be in a Standby Mode (no indicators lit).
2. Press the front panel pushbutton fully inward for 10 seconds. All indicators on the Back-UPS will flash to
acknowledge going into Programming Mode.
3. The Back-UPS will then indicate its current Sensitivity Setting, as shown in the following table.
