As part of our every day battery recycling, we sometimes get in working UPS units. This time, we got something a little different. Direct from the warehouse of a local telephone integrator we have two types of external battery units for enterprise grade UPSs.
First we have two APC chassis that come with 4 APC RBC7 battery modules. These are extension chassis that must be plugged into a compatible APC enterprise grade UPSs that have plugs that allow daisy chained extension modules.
It will be great if these can be used as complete sets. However, if there is a non-profit that can immediately use some or all of the RBC7 battery modules, you get second dibs on them.
We also have 3 Minuteman Enterprise EBP1 External Batteries units, that again are meant to be daisy-chained off of an enterprise grade Minuteman UPS. We have three of these in their original boxes.
As these units can be daisy-chained, these 3 units can be attached to 3 separate Minuteman UPSs, or all three daisy-chained to the same one.
These units have sat in a warehouse perhaps two years, so their batteries are aged. But their batteries check out as healthy, so I wouldn’t be surprised if you got 2 years of life out of them. And we can certainly work with any organization to replace end-of-life batteries in any UPSs.
These external battery units are available as a donation to any valid non-profit organization, so that the original donor can take a tax deduction for the gift. As these are specialized items, I appreciate help in forwarding this post to the IT staffs of non-profits large enough to have a need for this much backup capacity.
