Rising Lead Prices in 2017

Dec 12, 2016 | Industry

Batteries are the most critical component to an UPS system. A weak or bad battery makes an UPS interruptible.  All it takes is one weak or aging battery to expose your critical equipment to a power problem. The cost of keeping your batteries fresh and providing regular maintenance inspections on them is minimal, when compared to the cost of downtime that a single battery can cause.

We are hearing from our suppliers that the price of lead is expected to increase anywhere between 5% – 15% in 2017. Prices will start increasing as current inventory is depleted, so don’t delay.

Nationwide Power is available to support customers by getting a head start for anyone looking to replace their UPS batteries before the prices increase in 2017.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 800-868-2780 or click here to request a Quick Quote for Battery Replacement.
