If you're lucky enough to have a Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) NBN connection, your NBN installation may also include a battery pack to keep you powered up in the event of a power outage.
However, just like any other battery, these might run out of power. Below you'll find information on how much these batteries cost & your NBN Battery Replacement Options.
On a FTTP NBN connection, users not only get faster speeds, but they also have the option of installing a 'Power Supply' unit in their standard setup. This is basically a battery pack that will keep your internet running in the event of a power outage.
- NBN battery specs are: 12V, 7.0 to 7.2 Ah, 6 cell SLA battery (F2 terminals).
- Costs:NBN batteries may resemble mini car batteries, but they are much cheaper. Prices hover around the $40 mark, and seem to be much the same no matter what store or brand you purchase through.
- The stock NBN battery can last up to five hours, so if you’re in a blackout you may want to tread lightly with the Netflix
- The NBN battery comes with a two year warranty, after which customers may need to purchase their own if the stock one falls flat.
If you've just been hit by a storm and noticed the power went out, chances are you used your NBN via the battery pack to keep going. They'll need to be replaced eventually, just like any other battery, fortunately NBN battery replacement is an easy task.
When you switch to the NBN, your power supply unit will come with a back up battery in case of a power outage. This back up battery has approximately 5 hours of charge and without it, or if the battery is flat or faulty, you will not be able to access the phone or internet should the power go out.
When it's time to replace the backup battery, your power unit will alert you by producing an alarm sound - one beep every 15 minutes. The 'replace battery' light on your unit will also illuminate. Hearing 4 beeps every minute? This means that less than half of the battery charge remains.
