Reducing That Annoying Ups Beeeeep!

About: Update 12 September 2017: A very special thanks to Sam Elder, a manager here at Instructables, who tracked down the cause of my lost publications and fixed the issue. Take a bow Sam!

Intro: Reducing That Annoying Ups Beeeeep!

Don't we all hate that loud beep a ups makes when power goes? Don't we wish it can be softer instead of being loud annoying?

Read on for a quick fix I usually do for all piezoelectric beepers.

Step 1: Open Up and Identify the Beeper.

It's easy to find. Its the circular black device as in the pic.

Step 2: Applying Sound Attenuation!

Using double sides foam tape I applied two layers onto the top of the piezoelectric beeper.

Now as power goes, the beeping is softer and yet we all know that the ups is running on battery!

Cheap and easy in 6 minutes!
