    I understand now, thank you very much. I'll look for a replacement battery for this unit and use it for my monitor and other peripheral and buy another 1000VA/600W unit to hook up my pc on.

    Thank you all for your help, I learned a lot.

    The difference is too small so the battery will be able to charge fully, it will simply take linearly longer for a full charge, compared to 7.2Ah.

    It's true that the larger the battery's capacity, the larger the current it can (and will) accept while charging; and also the larger the maximum output current is.
    However, in this case the size format is intentionally the same between 7 and 9 Ah, as both battery types will happily work in the other one's place without causing issues.
    Haha, I remember trying to rig a cheap APC ups to a big car battery. The transformer got so hot it melted through the plastic. Turns out that thing didn't have current limiting for the charger,
