That was as far as I can recall the same event. I
vaguely recall having to move the battery into the
sent  UPS. I am sure that you know a lot more than I
what you are supposed to do but I would definitely not
use the old UPS anymore. The manufacturer probably
made a mistake in sending you a UPs with a battery and
decided it was not worth going after people who didn't
return their UPS.
The good thing is that you now have an extra battery.
Good for you!
