Which gets back to the original point I was trying to make. Iy the UPS does a load test (and I'm pretty certain My SmartUPS can, if enabled), you know the battery is failing *before* something face-plants, thus *reducing* risk! I test on all mine, and have never in 15+ years of doing so, had anything go down unintentionally . . . The fact that you have not tested is why you find yourself with such a bad battery . . .
