I did get a new battery backup. I have not installed it yet. As of now I'm still on the RG power cord. When I get time and not having to do much
I will probably switch them out. It's been a few years since this area has had a power failure or rolling blackout. After the first battery failure I just don't trust it that much.Message Edited by bsm2003 on 04-05-2009 09:11 PM
See description of Belkin battery backup, and comments, in first post on top of page 2 of this thread. Sorry about the stretch-o-vision of the post; it's a forum screen shot pasting issue.
Have seen some other posts where reliability/quality of this battery backup is questionable. Failures of your's supports this claim. Would still keep it charged in case of power outage for emergency phone use. Only problem is that during power outage searching around in the dark, with flashlight, to connect this may be last thing on your mind. Fortunately most people have cell phones for emergencies but 911 still working on trying to locate cell phone call transmissions.
Welcome to U-verse and glad your install went well!
