Speaking of batteries, don't expect to get more than three years life out of a five-year battery, even if you operate on battery only very occasionally for short periods. After three years, some of the cells get weak and you will not get your expected run time out of them. Not a good place to cut corners.

We have a pair of APC 2200s, powering a 510, a 170, a 40S, a D02, 2 Linux
boxes, 2 Windoze boxes, and assorted auxiliary equipment, and except for
some "false alarm" shutdowns (that my now-famous widgets corrected, as
well as providing power-failure-shutdown warnings to the two oldest
machines), they've worked rather well, particularly now that we have
multiple vendors to go to for new batteries, and a local recycling depot
that neither insists on selling us packs, nor charges a disposal fee.

Which is to say, take care of your battery vendors, and they'll take care of you. -- JHHL
