Looks like a good deal.
For mine I use Optima marine batteries from costco for $80. They are large and independent of the ups units, but can't beat them for value and backup time.

I recently replaced all my UPS batteries, and after lots of searching chose Arizona Battery. They had some of the lowest prices for the 2 types of batteries I needed, and they shipped quickly for a reasonable price. Not crapping on the OP's post, just tossing in another option that worked well for me.

Well..i did check about 7 stores..but not arizona battery. arizona is about 24.72 for my battery, wheras eBatts was 26.96 +8% CashBack (2.15) comes to $24.81.
So the both look in the same ball bark. Of course that was using a 10% off code with eBatts also and also factoring in CashBack.
Thanks ..next time i buy i will check out arizona too. As that may be the better deal depending on the batteries you are getting.

Dejapooh said: So i just spent a fair amount of time looking for a replacement battery for my apc ups backup pro 420
I wanted the same model of battery, as the one i have lasted 8 years (bb7-12) and did not want to take a chance on some other brand.
I did not want an "equivalent" battery.
I don't see where you are told you are getting an 'exact' match to the battery you have now. BB-Battery is a particular mfgr that APC uses, but they also use Panasonic and CSB.
Just today as a matter of fact I put in new CSB batteries in 4 of our UPS's at work - all APC and what came out where the 3 brands above.
2 years ago I rebuilt our APC Symmetra battery packs (4 packs, 10 qty 12V 7.2AH batteries in each). Those were built by APC with panasonic batteries.
The 12V 7AH'ish is a common size.
Just letting you know.

Gruberpower is an excellent source of quality batteries.
I just bought a couple raw 12V 18Ah for my APC UPS 1400 from Gruber. From Arizona these are $40 each, from Gruber just $32 each, shipping was the same from each $17 for the pair.
eBatts doesn't seem to sell the raw battery, they sell the drop in replacement with new connectors for $149 -10% -8% -> $123.
$81 total from Gruber so I save $40 if I reuse the cables...
I also purchased a couple raw 12V 12Ah batteries for the kids "power wheels" from Gruber for $27 each. These will take a bit more work to reuse the existing cables since the OEM batteries come with connectors and self resetting fuse epoxied in. But I save 50% off the OEM battery that didn't last as long as it really should. By redoing the wires I can create my own charger cable and use a better charger that should give the battery a longer life.
