Batteries for PowerShield UPSs can be purchased from Battery World stores.
UPS batteries contain lead acid and as such are considered a Dangerous Good. When used, they are considered a Controlled Hazardous Waste. It is therefore essential that they are handled and recycled in accordance with your country’s safety regulations in order to minimise environmental impact.
We offer a free recycling service by returning your used batteries to our Perth head office. You can also return your used batteries to any Battery World store for recycling.
Aldi supermarkets offer a free battery recycling service at all their Australian stores. Any brand of AA, AAA, C, D and 9V batteries (both rechargeable and non-rechargeable) are accepted – simply drop your used batteries into the dedicated bins in store.
