ONT Backup Battery Replacement

Message 1 of 5
(4,761 Views)

I'm attempting to replace my ONT battery to make the beeping stop.  I attempted to do it both here and through my set, but in both cases I get a message that says "this service is currently not working.  Try again later."  It's now been 10 days.  I give up.  My current battery model # is PX12072.  However, when I search this site it apparently does not exist.  The only one I can find is a GT-12080-HG (and you have to zoom in on the photo to see the model number, as no technical specs are provided).  Is this the appropriate replacement for my unit?

The GT12080-HG is the original battery.  The PX12072 is a substitute.  Either will work, though the GT12080-HG has a slightly higher Ah. (8Ah vs 7Ah)   The main difference is cost.
