Proper battery maintenance is an essential component of critical power, protection systems or uninterruptible power supply systems. While batteries have a limited life expectancy, you can address the factors that diminish capacity and cause premature failure. Battery backup failures can be reduced by understanding the causes: excessive cycling, improper charging, poor temperature control, installation errors, manufacturing deficiencies, and operational errors. Different types of batteries (lead acid, nickel cadium, etc.) also have their own weaknesses.
