Can the Casil CA1240 alarm battery be used to power any other devices?

Last Updated: 11/25/2013

Absolutely! While the Casil CA1240 is most commonly used as a backup battery for security panels, like the Honeywell Vista Series, it can also be used to power a host of other devices.

The CA1240 (12V, 4Ah) battery will work with just about any device requiring a similar voltage and amperage. This 12 volt sealed lead-acid battery is compatible with burglar systems, fire alarm systems, uninterrupted power supplies (UPS), and low-voltage lighting. It can even be used to power electric scooters, electric wheelchairs, and motorcycles. However, for instances where the battery isn't being trickle-charged by the device it's backing up, the user will be required to purchase a battery charger to periodically recharge the CA1240 battery.
