What are UPS batteries?
UPS stands for Uninterrupted Power Supply, and these are electrical batteries that are used for a range of purposes, including:
- Backup power systems
- DC power systems
- Powering industrial equipment
- Telecom power
- Generator power
These batteries are important power sources, but once they are broken, they are classed as a hazardous waste material. This means that they must be recycled in full compliance with laws and regulations. For business owners this is even more important, to avoid legal punishment. The UPS battery consists of lead plates, electrolytes and some type of plastic casing.
