My ACP BatteryBackUp/Surge Protection is beeping/flashing?
It is model BE325.
One day, after a party, I heard it making this beeping sound that doesn't stop at all (It's continous). And the light flashes (on, off, on , off,etc.). It's really annoying. And I don't know what's wrong with it.
Everything hooked up to it still works after I pushed the button/light a few times (now it's back to the same flashing thing and the beeping)
I think it need's a battery change but I'm not sure. Can anyone tell me for sure? Also, my other 2 batterybackup/surge protections from different companies kinda do same thing. (i think one is also beeping and the other has a red light rather than green. then, when i pushed the on button for the red light one, it turned green and it worked again)

Yeah, the battery is either dying or you got too much load connected to your APC.

Update: Ok, I read your manual and yeah, it is overloading.
Overload Shutdown - During On
Battery operation a battery-power
outlet was overloaded.

So there is something that is connected to your APC that is drawing more power than it should, or you just got too much plugged in .. for example .. NEVER put multiple outlet strips to your APC .. a no no.
Your battery is dying ..
Replace Battery - Battery may need
to be replaced, or the battery is not
Power On LED -
Continuous tone. Unit is turned OFF
and then ON and it
passes a subsequent
battery test. (This test
whenever the unit is
turned ON and every
