I need a UPS thats designed to maintain a 12 volt battery in a non-computer environment. Rather than using those cheapie auto battery trickle chargers that do not float a battery at a high enough voltage to maintain a battery for years, it was suggested that I use a UPS.
Years ago, UPS companies used to state on their packages and sales literature that the internal batteries they used were 12 volts. Today, with the exception of several UPS models specifically stating that they use 24 volt and 48 volt batteries (multiple 12 volters in series?), I can't find any specifically noting that their batteries are 12 volts. Has this voltage become the standard such that no one even bothers to state it anymore?
I have replaced several and all are 12 volt sealed lead acid. At work we use auto style batteries for our staion radios. I'll look and let you know what type of charging system we use. We have been using these batteries since '94.
