When it comes to running your business, storm prep is probably the last thing on your mind. Unfortunately, storms can hit when you least expect them, disrupting power and costing you both time and money. Batteries Plus can help you prepare for the unexpected with the backup batteries, lighting and UPS systems you need to keep you operating during a loss of power. For those times when the unexpected happens, our local stores are open seven days a week to help provide you with solutions when no one else can. Here's a quick look at what we have to offer.

Batteries Plus Has UPS Backups

An Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) will allow you to continue using desktop computers, servers and phone systems without interruption if there's a sudden loss of power. UPS systems also actively filter your power to protect against power surges and flickering power. Batteries Plus is a national distributor of UPS units from CyberPower and APC, perfect for your office or industrial needs.

What Kind of Battery Does a UPS Have?

If you have a UPS in your office or facility, it's important to check the batteries regularly. UPS batteries typically last between three and five years before they need to be replaced. Batteries Plus can provide you with the right replacement UPS batteries to fit any system from top brands like Duracell Ultra, including industry-leading telecom high-rate SLA batteries that can last up to ten years.

Replacing the batteries in a UPS system can be complicated. If you're looking for an easier solution, ask about our UPS Replacement Battery Cartridge Kits (RBC kits). These pre-kitted solutions come complete with the batteries already wired together, so you can simply plug it into your system without the hassle of connecting multiple batteries together yourself.

What is the Best Battery for a Generator?

Generators are another crucial tool for preventing costly downtime, but just like with UPS systems, they're only as good as the battery inside them. At Batteries Plus, we offer the highest quality generator batteries to fit your Generac, Kohler or other model generator. Our generator batteries are made in the U.S.A. Plus, we offer a number of Champion generator models, perfect for small businesses.

Do Surge Protectors Protect Against Storms?

Storms can create electrical surges and spikes capable of damaging computers and other valuable electrical equipment. We can help you protect your systems with our selection of high-quality surge protectors.

Batteries Plus Offers Commercial Emergency Lights with Battery Backup

Backup lighting is crucial in keeping your facility illuminated, your employees safe and to remain in compliance with local and national safety standards. Here are a few of our top solutions:

  • LED Dual Lamp Light Emergency Unit - features two ultra bright integrated LED lights powered by an internal nickel-cadmium battery that provides a minimum of 90 minutes of backup power. Available in a standard LED and higher output LED model.
  • LED Exit Emergency Sign - double-sided Exit sign features Universal mounting options, an integrated LED design and a nickel-cadmium battery that provides 90 minutes of backup power. Available in red or green.
  • LED Emergency Exit Light Combo Unit - combination unit features both an LED Exit sign and an LED dual lamp emergency light.

What Does a Flashlight Do in an Emergency Kit?

It's always a good idea to have a few backup lighting options on hand for sudden storms. Batteries Plus has a number of options, including flashlights, battery-powered lanterns and headlamps for hands-free use. LED flashlights offer longer runtimes, saving you money on batteries and providing valuable peace of mind in an emergency situation. We also offer tactical lights with the benefit of brighter beams that can be seen from longer distances.

What is an Industrial Alkaline Battery?

Make sure to keep a supply of extra alkaline batteries onsite to power flashlights, portable radios and other emergency gear. If you're looking for a longer lasting battery, we are one of the nation's largest distributors of Duracell Procell batteries, which are engineered to provide a higher ROI. We can handle orders of any size, from a single box of 24 AAs, to an order of 2.4 million. Save up to 20% by switching to Duracell Procell alkaline batteries.
