Should your business rent a UPS Battery?

While the economy is showing signs of life- it’s still not exactly smooth sledding out there. That means business owners are out there, figuring out creative new ways to create, always looking to do more with less and make their money go as far as it possibly can go. 

When it comes to designing server rooms – it’s not necessarily all that different. But alas, there are things in business that are non-negotiable – things that have to happen in order for your business to stay afloat. The cost of doing business – as they say. 

That’s why it’s important – especially in a day and age where information and data is everything – to make sure you’re not scrimping on you UPS power supply. This is your safety net if something bad happens. That being said – that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways you can save money – and that comes in the form of actually renting a UPS battery instead of buying one of your own. 

And especially if you’re not 100% sold on which one you should buy – maybe the rental is the better idea. We’ll explore that now. Here are some reasons you should consider renting your UPS battery. Let’s jump right in.

Minimizing liability

The expenses of owning a UPS battery don’t disappear once you purchase the battery itself. There’s service cost maintenance, system updates and the like. These certainly add up over time. When you rent a battery, much of that cost is baked into the rental fee and you can rest assured knowing that a lot of the maintenance/service cost is not only out of your hair, but is actually taken care of. And part of the additional benefit is that maintenance is already scheduled for you along with the 24/7 technical support.

Savings, savings

Any business owner will tell you – savings isn’t valuable from the standpoint that it puts money in your pocket so much as it allows you to address multiple, other needs your business has and makes it so that you can more appropriately manage your resources. That money that’s been going into servicing and maintaining your battery can now be used elsewhere. 


A lot of people hesitate to jump in on a UPS battery up front – because their business is in a growth phase – and it’s hard to speculate with any kind of precision – what their needs will be in say – six months, never mind a year from now. Renting a UPS battery means that as you business increases, you can upgrade your rental and have a larger power supply. So in essence you’re not locked into anything and your system can grow with your business. So if you need a backup power supply now, but don’t necessarily have a good idea as to what those needs might be – this could be a perfect solution for you.

Renting a UPS power supply is cost effective and flexible. Not only do you get the protection you need – but also a solution that can grow as your business grows. If you’d like to learn more, feel free to give us a call today but until then – good luck!
