BatteryShark UPS Battery Failures

Posted in Uncategorized on December 29, 2015 by brandon314

Fully charged 48 volt pack in an APC DLA3000RM2U. Individual measurements made on pack with light load. The two cells marked with “X” are failed badly and there is a 3rd weak cell. Weak/failed cells were moved to one series string upon discovery so that the UPS would pass a self-test without shutting completely down and risking system shutdown.

Batteries are <12mo old and have <5min of cumulative draw on them. Float charge voltage shown in last photo. System runs with 9-11% load.

Cell 1 – 12.20V

These were harvested from various sources that no longer allow them. Cudos to the rightful owners…may your legacy live on!

Hosted on google-drive.

dickbutt.zip has all the .stl files I have within. Chess Set pieces and a dickbutt 2D -> 3D conversion.

Cheers!
