GS Battery Offers You the Only-Manufacturer Approved Battery for Fiber to the Home Battery Backup Units, GS Portalac® PX12072


You can stop the beeping coming from your Verizon FiOS or AT&T U-Verse fiber to the home system’s battery backup unit (BBU) by purchasing a replacement battery from GS Battery (USA) Inc. (GSB), the only manufacturer-approved battery supplier for fiber to the home battery back-up units.

The system’s BBU provides back-up power in case of a power failure and allows standard voice service for up to eight hours.

GSB is the only battery manufacturer approved for the Verizon FiOS and AT&T U-Verse systems and both came from the phone companies with the Portalac PX12072 battery installed. Recently, this model has been upgraded to a new and improved model, the Goldtop GT12080-HG. The GSB Goldtop replacement battery offers a 3-year replacement guarantee and is designed for long life. This compares to traditional “universal” replacement batteries that offer a 1-year or less warranty and have a useful life of less than 2 years.

“GSB offers a product that customers can rely on to work when it is needed most,” said Vince Pusateri, Senior Director, New Business Development, at GS Battery. “Battery backup unit beeping coming from a fiber to the home system usually indicates the back-up battery has surpassed its useful life and needs replacing. To stop the beeping consumers can purchase the only manufacturer-approved battery for fiber to the home systems -- the Goldtop Battery. GS Battery worked closely with Verizon and AT&T to ensure our battery maximizes the performance of your BBU and fiber to the home system,” Pusateri concluded.

GSB is a member of Call2Recycle, the only no-cost rechargeable battery collection program in North America allowing customers to dispose of old batteries responsibly.

GS Portalac PX12072 replacement batteries may be purchased via or via the GS Battery Amazon Store. Additional information can be seen here: Be sure to look carefully for the GS Battery Goldtop battery and accept no imitations.
