Fits perfectly in my Verizon Fios unit - no more beeping
I received this in one day and it fits perfectly with my Verizon Fios unit. No more beeping- you can actually stop the beep until this arrives by disconnecting the beeping battery at top of unit and then plugging it back in. I have included pictures - this battery is identical in size and worked great and cost less than half what Verizon wanted me to pay. I suggest writing the date you installed this on the battery.

Installation tip- use pliers to get wires off old battery - you will need to attach these wires to new battery
By Amazon Customer
I got this battery to replace the battery in my home's Verizon FIOS unit. I looked into buying it directly from Verizon, but the price quoted was 2-3 times more expensive than buying it here. I wanted to pass on information about how to physically change the battery once you buy it. It may be obvious to some, but I'm posted for those who are nervous about doing this themselves.
1. Open cover of FIOS Battery Backup Unit.
2. Pull out battery. It will be connected to the unit by only a wire harness. You will need to reuse this harness with the new battery. If you pull the old battery out, you can easily see where to disconnect the wire harness. I just yanked the battery out and the wire disconnected on its own.
3. This was the hardest step for me-- disconnect the wire harness from the old battery. I tried tugging, but couldn't get the wires off. I ended up putting the battery down on a flat surface, grabbing a pair of pliers and pulling the wires off the old battery. I did the black wire first-- I just grabbed and pulled and it slid off. For the red wire, I had to use the pliers in a spot on the wire ABOVE the plastic piece-- again, I just gently tugged and the wire disconnected from the battery.
4. It took about 2 seconds to reconnect the wires to the new battery. You just slide the connectors on the battery terminals. Easy.
5. Put the battery back in the box and reattach the wire harness. Easy.
6. FYI-- Per Verizon, you do not need to cut power to the unit to replace the battery. My unit actually came with a sticker that told me that. I was able to literally just walk to the box, pull the battery, switch around the wires, and then put the new battery (with the old wires) into the unit. The whole process took about 3 minutes (because I had to find pliers).
My old battery only lasted a little over a year. I'm not sure how long the new one will last for. I think my battery probably ran down during a past power failure, so I'm not upset about having the replace it. I'm thrilled that the annoying and formerly mysterious chirp is now gone from the basement.
Quick update as of 8/20/2012: The battery is still going strong.

Buy a different brand
By Pat Dougan
This battery failed within the first year per the indicator light and beeper on my Frontier control panel. I called the manufacturer for replacement instructions. I would have to ship the battery back to them for testing which obviously eliminates the battery back up feature for my system. After testing, assuming it fails, they would ship me a new battery. I get to pay the shipping costs. This is hardly service. Overall, I would be without a backup for two to three weeks, the shipping costs, and the time inconvenience of packing etc. for a $18 battery. I recognize the need for them to verify a defect to keep people from abusing the return policy. However, a pic of Frontier/Verizon's flashing red light should be sufficient. Buy a different brand, hopefully American made. Their return policy sucks.
