    Sounds good to me, however I will add one general observation.

    We have a UPS in our phone room at work and there is no air conditioning
    in there, the ambient temp is not good for the batteries that are lead /
    acid gel types. I rather think finding a well ventilated / cool place to
    put it would he'p you extend the life of the unit.

    BTW when batteries in such things need replaced you local "Interstate
    Batteries" store is probably cheaper than most. We use some medical
    equipment at work and the price difference between buying the same
    darned battery can be $100 or more... :)
