They are standard SLA batteries.  Just make sure you get the right terminal size (0.187" or 0.250")

So I heard this beeping about every 30 minutes or so. I thought it was a
watch. My sister heard it too and didn't tell me so I was going nuts trying
to find it. It turns out that it was the replacement battery light on our
FIOS box. This is the battery backup in case power fails and lasts about 8
hours. It didn't help with Sandy because the power was out for 8 days.

So anyway I need to replace it. It is 12V 7.2 Ah. The one that Verizon
sells is 12V 8Ah:

.

I figure that I can get a cheaper or better one (longer lasting). Before I
start searching eBay, Google search are there any recommendations or
warnings?

Thanks!
