GE ITI Simon 2 replacement battery

Hi, I bought a older GE Simon 2 security system for my home and I'm wondering where you can find a replacement battery pack for the system?

Welcome to the forums.

It can be a little tough keeping the Simon (ITI) panels separated. It looks like your panel could use the 9v or the pack. If you have the actual pack in your system then you want the ITI 34-051.

You can search using that part number. Many places sell that battery pack.

Hi, thank you very much. I was searching around for this and this is perfect, but if the current battery pack has issues can I just easily switch to a 9V battery?

I still see them in use today.

If you currently have the multi cell pack in there...stay with it.
Otherwise the panel will need a program change.

Well, I know how to do the program change. I don't have a monitoring service at all. I have the installers guide. Its easy to do it all you just have to do is turn off Option 49 (rechargeable Battery)

After you turn off Option 49, I think you power cycle the panel and it should let you use the 9V connectors. But, your right. The rechargeable ones are a bit better anyways.

I was looking into the 9v battery. It says 9v 1.2Ah UltraLife lithium battery.
Good for 24 hours of operation. Not bad.

That's actually not bad at all. Does it have to be that specific brand? Or can I use a Duracell 9v in stead?t

It looks like the Duracell Ultra Lithium can also be used.

From what I can see.... standard 9v lithium batteries are 600mah. and ultra lithium cells are 1.2ah.
