iepure64 I'm back! So, the spark was normal,finally i have connected the batteries to the UPS and works as new! The software reports 100% charged DC batteries.

iepure64 Ok. It may be possible about the batteries,to not have the same charged value but,i think it is not the case, it is a quality brand and they came very well packed, i don't go for any product unless i am sure about it so this is out of question.I don't think that anyone sells redundant products,about UPS batteries,i might guess they update their warehouse with fresh products as i am seeing to this cells, very good stored condition...so, what can i do to just make the UPS work again?

bmgjet If its sparking its because the current is flowing some where. I wouldnt trust brand new batterys to all be at the same charge. Your going to have some that sat longer then others so all the current is going to flow there and cause a spark.
Sparking is normal tho, You just want to minimise it as much as you can.

iepure64 No... it fired a spark again this time doing with BLACK - as the last wire. How can i go right now... knowing that both wires drops sparking...?

iepure64 Ok. First, thank you for taking the time to reply me.The batteries are the same brand each other, but same voltage and ampere specification like the batteries that worn out.I just unboxed them this morning,so i think they are charged brand new batteries.So it left me to try out your variant, to connect BLACK - as the last wire, but i think i must do a fast and firm connection to prevent sparking again?

bmgjet Dont know if its the correct answer, Iv got 12X 12V9AH.

Just in the notes it had make sure all batterys are of the same ammount of charge to prevent a spark and obvously UPS turned off and unplugged from everything.
I connected black wire last since thats what we do with car batterys. Was a very small spark still when I connected the last wire.

Need answer, please!

Just got this for $120 CAD (Amazon PRIME Sales!) https://www.cyberpowersystems.com/product/ups/cp1000pfclcd/

 

For my rig in my signature, mostly need it PLEX idle mode consume about 100-120watts. It was able to last 22min until power is back on and if it is not, it goes hibernate mode at 7% battery level (you need to plug the USB from the UPS to your desktop to adjust when on battery hibernate at 7%). 

 

When the main rig is hibernate it consumes about 30 watts including my router and modem. 

 

Till power if back on, I connect remotely command WOL on my computer and voila, PLEX is back online!

 

This is my old X79 rig overclocked and able to run low power and high power when application demands it! Very smart setup. c: secret sauce for a 6 cores system at 130w CPU.

 

Maybe in the future I will get the newest Intel would run even lower power.

Awesome, thank you. I´ll research some more about available models of Eaton around here.
