Good morning gang,

Prior to moving into my home, someone installed an AT&T Altacel Lucent Battery Backup for a security system.

I'm pulling my hair trying to figure out what kind of cord/connection it is called which hooks up to the terminals of this lead battery + to the battery slot shown in the pictures below:









Can someone PLEASE help me? And if this is in the wrong category, please feel free to move it.

Thank you so much!

Best,
Luther
 
On the battery itself....those look to be 1/4" male spade terminals.
You mate to them with 1/4" female spade terminals.....but I would measure the width just to make sure.

As far as the other connector. It's hard to see. It looks like 2 pins. Correct?
It looks like the jack is pulled out. Is it?
You can always connect to those wires behind the jack if you can't connect to the pins.
....but they also sell female pin receptacles in whatever size those pins are.

FYI:

Provided that I correctly identified the applicable CyberPower Manual see Page 10 of 11.

There is a reference to "Faston terminals" (which I would also call a spade terminal) along with "battery harness" on Page 9 of 11.

Also noted that the battery may not be correctly placed. Figure 8 on Page 10 of 11 notes the terminals should be on the right.

"Harness" image:

Look around, the harness may have gotten stashed away somewhere.
