Avel here today with BatteriesInAFlash.com. Today we’re gonna be rebuilding an RBC7 with Exell Batteries, a division of BatteriesInAFlash. In this day and age battery backups are essential. They help safeguard all your sensitive electronics. So when your battery backup
dies, it doesn’t mean you need to throw it away. Simply just replace the battery and I can
show you how to do that. First you’ll need to remove the batteries from your APC unit or battery backup. Once you have done that set the batteries on top of your workspace. I have determined that I need a Phillips screwdriver, a putty knife and a 3/8
wrench. To begin removing the top plastic protective covers I will use a putty
knife. I prefer using putty knife over a flathead screwdriver because of the
wider blade and thinner material allows me to remove the covers without any hassle.
Once you remove the plastic covers you should be able to see the inline fuse
and the connector. [Seasame Street Reference] “Today’s video has been brought to you by the letter H! Let’s begin to remove the connector. To do this we’ll need the phillips screw driver and 3/8 wrench Be sure to keep all your hardware to the
side safely. You will need to use this to reconstruction your new battery. Be sure to inspect the wires and the
casing of the connector to be sure there are no nicks or damages on it, as you’ll be
using it again. Just as a connector, you’ll need the phillips screwdriver to
begin removing the in line fuse. Now that you have the fuse removed, we will need to inspect it. There are two ways you can do this. One, with an ohmmeter from your
multimeter or visually look through the viewfinder and see that there are no
separations or burn mark inside the fuse housing. Now that we have all the
hardware from the old battery, set them to the side and let’s get our new battery
started. Today, I will be using Exell Battery 12V 18A battery as my replacement. They can be found on the BatteriesInAFlash.com website. With both batteries on your workbench and push both batteries
together so that their labels are touching each other. We will begin by putting the inline fuse back on. I find it easier to put the nut with fuse together and then put it in place. Once you’ve done that, use the screwdriver and your finger to
tighten them into place. Remeber not to over tighten them, as you will not be able to redo this process in the future. Now, let’s begin working on the
connector. Start by putting the screw through the eyelet of the connector, which will make
it easier for us to put the battery terminal. Be sure to connect the red wire to the red terminal and the black wire to the black terminal. Now the we have the screws in the connectors, we can begin tightening them with the screwdriver and the wrench. Be sure not to over tighten. At this point while tightening, it is very important to not let the wrench touch the positive or negative terminal while touching the other
terminal. This could caused shorting or even explosion. The last thing we need to
do is to put the covers over the connectors to protect the terminals from
shorting or damage. One of the covers has a slot in it for your wires to pass through.
Just be sure to press the covers in place firmly so that the adhesive
sticks. So with the cost of a couple batteries and a little bit of your time, you
could restore your battery backup. And remember to Tune In, Charge Up or you just might be left in the dark [THUD] Oww!!

    Tip – remove fuse link first to negate risk of shorting when undoing the wires.

    This battery reconditioning program exceeded my presumptions [ check Details Here>>>https://www.facebook.com/Battery-reconditioning-310070329426065/app/208195102528120 ]. It worked on any drill battery, several AA and AAA batteries, and any camera battery. The steps are simple and the act itself is exciting to do. No matter what type of battery you`ve got, it is sure to function again!
