What are UPS batteries?
Portable batteries are found in a wide range of electrical items and one of the most common types of portable battery is the UPS battery. UPS batteries are a special type of lead acid battery that are designed to provide an “uninterrupted power supply”. This can be crucial for some machinery and equipment, including:
- Backup power systems
- DC power systems
- Powering industrial equipment
- Telecom power
- Generator power
These batteries are powerful, but they can cause extensive environmental damage when these are not properly and safely disposed of. In fact, it is now required by law that these are disposed of correctly, under the WEEE directive. This is important for both companies and individuals to be aware of. But with us here at X-Met Metals, its easier than ever to recycle your UPS batteries safely.
