How do you know the UPS is not being charged past 25%? What management SW are you using to view the UPS?
If there is indeed a problem with the UPS then you can call into support and have the batteries replaced (assuming it is still under warranty).
What version of the FW are you running on the UPS? Perhaps making sure you are at the latest would also help.

OK, common mistake. The front panel does not show you charge, it shows load. 0-25% is the first LED. This means that you have 25% or less load on the UPS, not the battery charge.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Scott is correct. The bars on the right of the unit show the current load. You only need to get worried if this is at the 100% mark.

Please see the attached image which explains this.

If your load is currently at 25% you have absolutely nothing to worry about.

Regards,

Brian
