Replacement battery for Verizon Fios
I have a battery unit in my garage that somehow brings the fiber optics technology into the house to run the internet connection, cable, and perhaps the phone line.
That battery warning light went on a few days ago and it needs to be replaced. I was wondering if it can be replaced with something other than what it is now. I read on the battery that its a "valve regulated lead acid battery". I called Verizon and they said I could get a replacement from Radio Shack or even a motorcycle shop.
I thought maybe this is "old technology" and there might be a better solution to power this thing up. The battery also reads "Portalac PX12072, 12 volts 7.2Ah; distributed by GS Battery (USA) Inc. Made in Taiwan.
The special symbol has a "P" and around it are the three bent arrows in a clockwise direction.
