NEW BATTERIES VS. NEW UNIT

Minuteman battery backup system hardware is designed to function properly well beyond the life of the factory installed batteries. This makes battery replacement a cheaper and environmentally friendly option in most cases.

For smaller units, however, the cost of batteries often approaches the price of a replacement unit. Here are some factors to consider when deciding whether to replace the batteries, or replace the whole unit.
