UltraTech has never failed on us, even in the most trying of times. We've had crazy power surges and power outages but UltraTech always kept our alarm panels working long enough for power to be restored. I always order UltraTech batteries when it's time to replace them, because I know with UltraTech i don't have to replace them too often. It's a no brainier, when most installers want to charge you $150 for a service call to install a $40-50 battery.

We've used UltraTech batteries for years, just because of their enduring resilience in 'adverse' conditions. We've used UltraTech Batteries in so many different deployments and so do most of our neighbors and friends in the area. We recommend UltraTech batteries, for sure, just because we know at the end of the day, we're protected when it comes to backup power.

UltraTech is Ultra Reliable! I love their batteries and won't use anything else for my alarm panel. I know my family is safe and secure at all times!

The UltraTech 1240 is definitely one of the best batteries in it's industry. I originally received a different brand of battery when I bought my Alarm Panel that didn't last that long at atll! My next purchase was an UltraTech and I haven't been disappointed since. Years of reliability, hands down and I don't have to worry about blackouts or anything else, because I know my Ultratech Alarm Battery has me covered! Thanks Ultratech!
