Good price for an APC branded, 9Ah battery. They usually go as low as $35-40, but you may not be able to catch a sale when your old battery dies and you need a new one NOW.

That battery has a lower 7.2Ah capacity and smaller F1 terminals so technically not RBC17-compatible despite saying so (one reviewer used pliers to compensate for the loose connection). Mighty Max does have a 9Ah battery with F2 terminals for $23.55, curiously shipped and SOLD by Amazon [amazon.com] which may or may not be a good thing: for SLA battery with a limited storage/shelf life, some may prefer the seller ship fresh stock directly from their own warehouse (as with your 7.2Ah listing).

OP's listing is good when your friend needs a battery, since you don't want to be blamed for getting an off-brand if it doesn't work. For myself, I usually buy at least 2, and I can get (2) 9Ah for around $40 shipped from battery specialists like BatterySharks.com. Those popular CyberPower 1350VA/1500VA UPS towers each take two 7Ah/8Ah/9Ah F2 batteries (model RB1270/RB1280/RB1290) if you reuse the old wiring harness.

Also, I ensure that the UPSes that I buy can take the larger 7-9Ah battery size (as smaller sized batteries aren't much cheaper). Those used to be commonly $40 and under back in the Staples coupon days but for the last few years the cheaper models come with physically smaller 5.5-6Ah batteries.
no you cannot. Li-Ion chemistry aren't close enough to SLA, you'll either be too low or too high voltage. Charging profile are also very different. LiFePo on the other hand, can.
I've been buying 'generic' ones off EBay, and they run for ~5 years, which is in line with the lifespan I got out of the OE batteries that came with my APC UPSes.

Tempted to get the generic for a bit less... Is OEM really better than this?

Just an FYI.
I understand that this is not for everybody...but if you are a little handy, you can replace this Lead Acid battery with a DIY LI-Ion battery made with 18650's.
You get the same benefits here as you do elsewhere with this change.
For as much as they charge for these UPSes in the the first place, I'm surprised they haven't switched to lithium yet. They must be making a killing on the UPSes and the markup for stores must be huge too, due to the good sales on them at BF/CM.

Lithium ion probably costs them more and would probably make a lesser profit overall. Would be nice to have a small battery backup that actually works too. I have a decent sized one for my computer set up, but to have one for a modem or router set up in a different area would be nice. Those $35 battery backups tend to malfunction often.

Whereas it's still the same size I "Upgraded" my Cyberpower UPS with 2 LiFePo Batteries (with built in BMS) that were like 1 or 2 Wh larger and it's much lighter now, I still only get a couple of minutes (maybe 20-30 max at idle) of use before it shuts down but these should last a lot longer before they start to go bad and should handle most fluctuations and whatnot better than SLA.

They really do need to start offering Lithium options for the consumer grade. If I remember correctly they do have some Lithium powered UPS options for servers, but I agree I would love a smaller more powerful unit designed with Lithium in mind.

You're not wrong, but you're also incorrect as this has been done. The bms takes care of regulation for you. Go YouTube it out Google it.

Don't need to, I've made several already using LiFePO, I also have a spot welder to do this properly instead of solder. You really want LiFePO, not regular Li-Ion, but I'm off topic.

I replaced my fiber router's UPS with a generic SLA from amazon, it died in 2 years, and that seems to be the norm according to reviews.
