NO, I don't think so. I would not want a lead-acid battery in my house,
giving off all those fumes. Also, the way I've seen UPS units being tossed
around, it is not a safe way for commercial producers to manufacture them.
I'm sure they would be getting sued up the wazoo on a regular basis. They are
more likely dry NiCads, or some other rechargeablw dry cells. The batteries
in military fighter jets are muti-cell NiCads, and they would make nice UPS
