Most certainly. if the Battery is totally dead, the UPS will not do a
sausage. Test with car batteries matching the voltage reqd. If it springs
into life, buy new batteries. I have about a dozen UPS devices around the
house all bought as Dead. New batteries fixed EVERY One.
Range from APC BackUPS300 to SmartUPS1400VA, must be a few quids worth if
bought new. Gel batteries are pretty cheap nowadays too
