I have a APC Smart-UPS 1500 battery backup rackmount battery backup for a few servers and there is a red light that has recently come on on the right side of the face of the battery.  I have two others and they seem fine.  This is the only one with this red light.  What does this mean?

This light means that your battery has reached the end of its life and needs to be replaced. You can find batteries directly from APC, with disposal included. Other vendors sell just the battery, as well.
