Voltage and Tip Label
Rubber “Feet” (4)
Before using this battery, determine the DC input voltage requirement for
the notebook being used. Notebook voltage ratings are usually indicated
in one of two locations: at the back of the notebook on the system label or
on the notebook AC-to-DC power adapter label.
Charging and Connecting the UPB80
5. When the Status indicators illuminate, the UPB80 is charging. Continue
charging the UPB80 until all indicators illuminate and then extinguish.
Prior to use, completely charge the UPB80. Follow the instructions for
setting the output voltage on the UPB80. Provided with the UPB80 is a
plastic bag with an assortment of plug and jack tips. Plug and jack tips are
each marked with a letter designator which corresponds to notebook
models listed in the “Compatibility Guide” and “Compatibility” section of
this manual. Plug tips are used to connect the output power of the UPB80
to the input DC voltage port on the notebook. Jack tips are used to connect
the UPB80 to a power source (notebook’s AC/DC Power Adapter, or
APC’s TravelPower or Universal Power Adapters - purchased separately).
Tips are marked with an uppercase letter (A, B, C, etc.). Jacks are marked
with a lowercase letter (a, b, c, etc.).
6. Check the UPB80 capacity. Press the On/Status push button. The Status
indicators on the UPB80 will light and stay lit for about 5 seconds. If this is
the first time using the battery, and all indicators do not light, fully charge the
UPB80 before continuing.
4
Example: An IBM® X31 uses plug tip “B” and jack tip “b”. An Acer
Travel Mate® uses plug tip “K” and jack tip “k”, etc. The letter designators
correspond to notebook models listed in the “Compatibility Guide” and
“Compatibility” section of this manual. To make connections, refer to
Figures 1 and 2, then proceed as follows:
1.Attach the appropriate Jack tip to the UPB80 Input Power Connector.
2.Attach the Plug tip to the UPB80 Output Power Connector.
3. Attach the notebook power adapter, APC TravelPower Adapter, or
Universal Power Adapter to the UPB80 Jack tip.
4. The UPB80 Status indicators should illuminate. If they do not,
ensure the notebook power adapter is connected to a power source,
and any switch controlling the power source is in the ON position.
7. The UPB80 is now ready for use. If the notebook power adapter, APC
TravelPower Adapter, or APC Universal Power Adapter is present, the
UPB80 will pass through power to the notebook. If the notebook power
adapter is removed, the UPB80 will continue to provide power to the
notebook, and the notebook will appear to be connected to utility power. To
optimize runtime for the battery, adjust the notebook power settings to save
power. See notebook user manual for information on changing power mode
settings.
5
Turning On the UPB80
When the battery has been stored for more than 15 minutes, or has not been
attached to a notebook), the battery will enter Sleep Mode. To turn the battery on,
press the On/Status push button for 1 second, then release. The Status indicators
illuminate, showing the battery is awake.
6
Checking UPB80 Status
You can check the status of the battery at any time. Simply press and hold the On/
Status push button for 1 second, then release. The LED Status indicators will
illuminate, indicating the charge level of the battery. Refer to Figure 3 for Status
Indicator Definitions (when you turn on or check status of the battery, it will show
the remaining charge level capacity).
If the voltage cannot be located, refer to the “Compatibility Guide” to
determine the required setting for the notebook being used.
2
Output Voltage Setting
Please refer to Figure 1 to become familiar with all aspects of the UPB80.
To set the voltage output for the UPB80, proceed as follows:
1. Locate the input voltage requirement for your notebook computer.
(Refer to “Finding the Notebook Voltage Setting” for instructions).
2. Remove the yellow sticker on the UPB80 which covers the Output
Voltage Selector Switch.
3. Turn the Output Voltage Selector Switch to the required voltage
setting for the notebook being used.
4. Press the "On/Status" button to make the change effective. Note: If
this is the first time using the battery, attach a power source to wake
up the battery. Continue reading the manual for further instructions
on first use.
3
Changing the Voltage While the Battery is
in Use
If the voltage selector dial is moved while the battery is in use, the battery
will interrupt the output of power to your notebook computer. To resume
power output, ensure that the voltage selector is turned to the correct
output voltage (please refer to the Notebook Users Manual for
instructions). Press the On/Status push button for approximately 1 second,
then release. The On/Status indicators will illuminate, indicating the
battery has resumed power output.
If any item listed above is not in the package, contact APC Customer
Service.

Tip
For best results, do not store the UPB80 where there is excessive heat or cold, as such environments can
damage the battery pack and reduce battery life. If storing the UPB80 for an extended period, completely
discharge and recharge the unit before the next use. This can be done by attaching the UPB80 to a notebook
and waiting until the it is fully discharged. The UPB80 is fully discharged when the amber Status indicator is
extinguished. Attach a notebook power adapter to the UPB80 and continue charging it until all Status
indicators are extinguished. For best results, the UPB80 should be fully discharged and recharged once every
3 months. This will condition the cells inside the battery to ensure the UPB80 delivers the most capacity
available.

Problem
The UPB80 is not charging
the notebook when the AC
adapter is connected to the
UPB80.
Corrective Action
Notebook AC Adapter output voltage does
not match the output voltage setting on the
Output Voltage Selector Switch.
Check the voltage rating from the system label on
the notebook or power adapter.
Turn the Output Voltage Selector Switch to the
corresponding voltage.
The actual voltage produced by the
notebook AC adapter is offset from its
rating.
Disconnect the Power Cable from the UPB80.
Turn the Output Voltage Selector Switch to the
next highest voltage setting.
Example: if the notebook AC adapter is 15V, turn
the Output Voltage Selector Switch to 16V.
The notebook is an Acer model, and is

of this manual to ensure the appropriate voltage
setting for the notebook is being used, and to
ensure the proper jack tip and plug tip are being
used.
