Why does my UPS beep sometimes?

A UPS beeps to warn the user of a power problem or dead battery. Occasional random beeping typically indicates a temporary over- or under-voltage condition. If this happens often have your power checked out.

Update: UPS batteries typically last three to five years, depending in part on how often the battery is used.
