FDP Forum / Moe's Tavern (_8^(I) / Verizon Fios battery

I love my Fios.

Maybe some of you are familiar with the infamous battery.
The battery is supposed to provide power for the unit in the event of a power failure. I guess your land line will be supported.

But the battery does not last for ever, and eventually the beeping of the unit will start. The alarm silence button doesn't seem to do much. The options are to disconnect the battery, or buy a new battery. Anyone one experience this? There may have been another thread on this in the past.....

CO2 ... is there anything it can't do?

Mine started beeping a couple years ago. I only have Fios for my landline and I only use it for business during the week.

Anyway, I just uplug the box from the wall outlet and leave it unplugged for a couple hours. When I plug it back in, the beeping stops and it's good for a couple months.

Eventually, I'll get around to buying a new battery.

It's a sealed battery, like what goes in a motorcycle.

Pull the battery and take it to a Battery Warehouse to match it with a replacement. Way cheaper than getting if from the fios goobers.

I was talked into having a non-copper wire entry into my house, even though I kept my land line,
use cable.

They didn't tell about the battery replacement.
First time ever, I disagree with Peegoo-
