What are the battery replacement options for the Smartcell battery pack?
Matrix UPS with SMARTCELL battery packs
APC has discontinued the SMARTCELL battery pack due to lack of availability of unique parts required to build it.
In order to continue to support the use of the Matrix battery pack, APC has teamed up with Coastal Business Machines, a certified pre-owned partner, to offer refurbished sales and service of the SMARTCELL battery packs.

Option 1: Purchase a refurbished SMARTCELL pack, which includes return shipping and disposal of the old battery pack (if applicable).
