When selecting a battery for your UPS system, it is essential to understand the difference between the design life and service life of the battery. Design life refers to the expected lifespan of the battery when it is used under ideal conditions. Service life, on the other hand, refers to the actual lifespan of the battery when it is used under real-world conditions.

It is important to note that the service life of a battery can be extended by proper maintenance and care.
