Customer reviews for 12-Volt 7-Amp Replacement Battery
Review 1 for 12-Volt 7-Amp Replacement Battery
Check battery manufacture date
PostedJuly 18, 2015
No, I do not recommend this product.
After reading reviews, I checked the manufacture date that was stamped on top of the battery. It was November 2014. This means there are only four months left on the one year manufacture warranty. I did not buy this product from Home Depot. It should be noted I went to two different Home Depot stores and they both had batteries stamped 2014.
Cons: old stock batteries - nearly out of warranty
I'm glad that I read the reviews on these replacement batteries prior to going to Home Depot to purchase this battery. There were 2 batteries that were out on the shelf. One was dated June 2012, and the other was July 2013. I saw a sealed box behind them. I opened the box and it contained 4 batteries. The date on these four batteries were dated September 2014. I took one of these as at least I had an 8 month warranty left, since the warranty date is based on manufacture date, not purchase date. The battery that I replaced had lasted almost 5 years from the alarm installer, so time will tell how this battery's life will be. At least the price at Home Depot was about 1/2 of what I paid the installer for the previous battery.
Our back-up battery from Verizon began beeping. I did some online research and found that Home Depot carried one that would work. I ordered it online and picked it up in the store -- very easy. The only negative thing that happened is that I didn't know that I needed to remove some wires to re-use them for the installation. The replacement doesn't come with wires, and you need to use the original ones. I left the old battery to be recycled at Home Depot, but luckily, it was still there when we went back to the store so we could retrieve the wires. It would have been helpful if the customer service staff had noticed that I needed to take the wires off the old battery to use to install the new one.
I bought one of these about a year ago from Home Depot and it needs replacing. I went to the local Home Depot to see about a new one. The warranty is good for one year from the date manufactured that is stamped on the battery. The date manufactured is SEPTEMBER 2013. The day I went to get one was FEBRUARY 28, 2014. I Won't purchase it at Home Depot because the one year warranty is now only about a six month warranty.
Needed a battery for my alarm system, Checked on line and to my surprise Home Depot had it in stock. Ordered on line and picked up in less than a half hour. Thought I would have to go to electronic store for the battery. No more having the alarm company contacting me to say "Low Battery" Thanks
Their batteries stock is old, it is now 7/15/2012 and the battery date is 11/2011. So the warranted is only 4 months not a year! I hope it will last at least a year, my original battery lasted 3.5 years. This is a replacement for my battery backup for my Verizon FIOS battery. Replaces Portalac PX12072 and terminals are not T/F2s, they are T/F1s but still works.
I have two of these running solar powered groundlights and they're very reliable. Ive had issues with other brands of lead acid batteries, but this model is steady eddie. My only complaint is that it is overpriced compared with batteries with similar amperage.
Pros: Functional, Well Made, High Quality of Material, Good Size & Weight
1 year Warranty is from the date stamped on side of battery. Should be from time of purchase, and battery should last for 2 years. Performance - 7.0 A/H is enough power to support FIOS Interface Unit for usual power outage of up to 10 hours. This is my second replacement battery in 5 years and will continue to use Lithonia Products.
Battery replaced a UPG UB1250 with F2 terminal for ADT security system, which lasted about 37 months. Contact ADT to make sure your control panel can support up to 8 Amp Hour battery. Their instructions read "All ADT control panel batteries are 12 volt and are usually 4.5Ah capacity. The battery voltage must be 12 volts and the capacity should be at least 4Ah but no greater than 7Ah." This was also an "upgrade" from a 12v and 5.0 Amp Hour battery in terms of capacity.
The conflicting piece of information is the battery's Amp Hour. One side says 7.2 Amp Hour and another side says 7 Amp Hour; which is a .2 Amp Hour difference.
Easy to install; disconnect black wire, disconnect red wire from terminals on old battery; reconnect red wire, reconnect black wire to terminals on new battery. This battery comes with F1 terminals, but it works.
Now the bad, 1 year warranty from the date code on the battery. The date code on battery is April 2013, it's not almost mid November 2013. A bit stale stock, lost about 6.5 months on the warranty. I also saw one or two other batteries by other manufacturers dated 2007. Recommendation is to check the date code before purchasing.
At least my local Home Depot had it in stock; no more annoying low battery message and beeps.
Cons: date code may be a few months old (stale stock)
Bought this battery to replace an old one for my ADT alarm system (Safewatch Pro 3000). The original one was 12V and 4.5Ah. If you look it up on ADT's website, they are replacing it with 12V/7Ah batteries @ $29.99 (free standard shipping- 3-5 days). I chose to not to wait and bought it at Home Depot (didn't want to risk waking up in the middle of the night with those annoying alarm noises).
They only had two units, none was in a box. They didn't have their plastic caps covering the connectors and were dusty on top. I chose one that was at least in a plastic bag.
Specs: There are two labels on the battery. Once says 7.2Ah and the other 7.0Ah (like someone else commented before). The measurements are all off. The actual ones are 2.5in (d) x 6in (w) x 4in (h) so it definintely fits the panel in which it should go.
It was manufactured on Mar 2014 (purchase date was September 1st) so I am 6-month short on the warranty. Hopefully that will not hunt by down the road.
