If it's the one I think it is, About 18" Tall, sharp cornered rectangle
front with a clear plastic slide over the power on/off button and two
extra cables from the back of the UPS to the 170 itself. (None of the
pictures on the EATON website show this unit but its the one shipped with
many MANY 170s.)

In that case those batteries are SUPER common and can be had at any
battery place. Here is one link:

You will need sets of four. There are three drawers in the UPS of which
you may have one, two or three installed. Always replace the batteries in
all the drawers or you will overcharge the good ones trying to keep the
weak ones charged.

If you can read this, thank a teacher....and since it's in English,
thank a soldier.

Does anyone no what kind of batteries are inside a 9910-080 UPS attached
a 170 box? I don't really want to drive for 6 hours to find out!

Something like 4x 12v 7ah?
