Thanks for the advice. I actually had two UPS's down. One wouldn't
power things even with A/C power on it and one didn't work when the
power failed. One was a Cyberpower and one was a tripp lite. I opened
both up to get the batteries and found the Cyberpower smelled like
something was burned inside. The battery had 12+ volts and was cool.
The tripp lite's battery was warm and had only ~10 volts. They both
were the same battery though 7 amp-hour.... I took the good battery and
put it in the tripp lite and it works fine now. I think the Cyberpower
is smoked. I guess it did its job and kept some of my computers from
going up. Well two dead gets one alive for $0. Not bad.
Thanks for the help.
