I have Tech-com UPS 600kvanow the battery does not hold for even 1 second with or without load.Hence its useless to have that UPS.the new UPS costs around Rs. 1300.What is the cost of new battery?Can that device battery be replaced? Or I just dump it?

a new original battery will not cost less than 600 ( after giving old battery).. The original OEM battery bundled with a new UPS generally last longer..better to go for a new one..and just FYI.. a Numeric 600VA would cost 1600 and would be better quality/support than the tech-com..

is it safe to buy battery and change it on my own?bcz the label on ups says caution... no user servicable parts inside. Only qualifies techies can open it...
