NBN Replacement Battery
When to replace your nbn™ connection box battery
When your backup power supply battery begins to fail, the power unit will emit a beeping sound. Some ISPs will also alert you via email or text message that your backup battery needs replacing.
How often should I replace the nbn™ connection box battery?
Generally, an nbn™ connection box backup battery should last up to 2 years. Due to the nature of backup power supplies, the batteries are always in use and always being charged - they are not only in use during power outages.
We recommend you replace the battery regularly, e.g. every 2 years, before it gets to the point where the system is in alert status.
What if I don’t replace the nbn™ connection box battery?
Most phone lines that run via the nbn™ will not operate in a power outage if the backup the battery is not fully operational. This means that in an emergency situation where your premises loses power, you may not have phone communication. This is the reason the nbn™ backup battery power supplies are installed by default with your nbn™ installation. It is for your safety that the backup power supply is operational.
