How do I silence the beeping BBU on an old model?

Hi, I've seen this issue about BBUs beeping posted here a few times, but I've seen no practical solutions. From what I have read, the newer models of the Battery Backup Units stop beeping when you take out the battery. My version will beep until the battery is replaced with a functional one. I dont want to shell out for a new battery again as I've already gone through three. Furthermore, I have at least 2 cellphones around me in the event of a power outage, so the landline working is useless to me anyway. Pressing the "Alarm Silence" button only satisfies it for 24 hours, after which there is more incessant beeping. I found a picture of the BBU I'm using on the web ( This beeping is driving me insane, please help?

You already answered your own question. Either replace the battery or press the button everyday unless you call Verizon to swap out your bbu for a newer model that doesn't beep.
