Step 1: Identify your NBN™ Power Supply with Battery Backup
First, check whether your battery is still under warranty. If your Power Supply with Battery Backup is showing a red light next to the ‘REPLACE BATTERY’ symbol or you hear an alarm (beeping once every 15 minutes) this either means that you need to replace your battery with a new one or that the battery has been removed.

Push the tabs holding the battery, one above and one below, outward and then lift the battery out (C). Disconnect the black ‘–’ plug and remove battery (D).
Step 3: Installing your new battery
Reconnect the black ‘–’ plug to the new battery (E). Push the battery retaining tabs outward and insert the battery into the Power Supply with Battery Backup (F). Reconnect the red ‘+’ plug to the new battery (G). Make sure the wires are not being pinched by the battery or front cover. Close the front cover. Plug the power supply back into the power point and turn the power on. The new battery will take 24 hours to completely charge. Please retain the old battery as a precaution during this time unless its charge was completely exhausted.
