Thank you to everyone - Kelly, Colin, Adam, Bill, Trevor, etc. - for your
very useful replies. If I do go with non-APC batteries, I will likely go
with Battery Man as first choice (had a good talk with them on the phone)
or with Manitoba Battery as second choice.
But I also note Trevor's comments of how name-brand replacements
inexplicably seem to outlast the non-brand batteries. That is exactly what
I've experienced in cell phone and cordless phone batteries.
Trevor, I'll write to you privately for a quote.
