Description

The Qolsys IQ Battery is the backup power source for the original Qolsys IQ Panel. The battery stores power while the system is using AC power. If the power goes out, the system will automatically switch over to its battery backup to keep running. This is critical for reliable monitoring.

The battery features lithium ion technology for a long life expectancy. It is designed to keep the system running for up to 24 hours when the power goes out. Please note, this is part number QR0018-840. It should not be confused with the backup battery for the IQ Panel 2 System, which is available here.

The Qolsys IQ Battery is the replacement battery for the original Qolsys IQ Panel Security System. Like most backup batteries, the Qolsys IQ Battery is designed to keep the system temporarily running in the event that AC power is lost. This can be due to the transformer becoming unplugged or disconnected or because of a general electrical outage. The Qolsys IQ Battery should not be confused with the backup battery for the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 or IQ Panel 2 Plus, as that is a completely different part number. Overall, we really like the Qolsys IQ Battery, and we give it a 5 Star rating.

There are many positive aspects regarding the Qolsys IQ Battery. For one, it keeps the system running for up to 24 hours at a time. This is pretty long for a panel backup battery. We also appreciate the fact that the battery has an easy connector for connecting with the panel. You will still need to access the inner panel board, but the process is fairly easy. The battery is rechargeable and will slowly store a charge over time. This is what allows the battery to function properly.

There are not many downsides for the Qolsys IQ Battery. Since the original IQ Panel is not frequently used, not many people will really have a need for the IQ Battery. Remember, this battery cannot be used with an IQ Panel 2 or IQ Panel 2 Plus. Also, like any rechargeable battery, the IQ Battery will lose its ability to store a charge over time. Once that happens, the battery will need to be replaced. Also consider that the battery must installed inside the panel. You will most likely need a screwdriver to access the inside of the panel and complete this process.

We think the Qolsys IQ Battery is a great product if you need a new battery for an original Qolsys IQ Panel. We give it 5 Stars.

Good: Up to 24 Hours of Power, Easy Connector, Rechargeable,

Bad: IQ Panel is Uncommon, Not for IQ2 or IQ2+, Will Eventually Require Replacement, Must be Installed

Bottom Line: 5 Stars
