Yep think thats a load of you know what.. I have NEVER had anyone when I worked at the supplier want a battery for an emergi-pack from the factory... Just for kicks though " warrenty" is spelled wrong... is it not spelled "Warranty"?

The label covering the factory markings is not important for operation. As long as you match the voltage, either 6 or 12, a new battery will have at least the same AH rating. A voltmeter on the battery will tell you the voltage.
The UL and warranty concerns matter only as far as they matter to whom they matter. On a warranty claim, Lithonia has the edge, as it's their nickel. Between us, I'd use a cheaper replacement if it was my nickel.

Iwire, I agree. One thing we must all understand: ONLY UL gets to speak for UL. Not you, me, the AHJ, Lithonia, or anyone else.
A listing will not be voided if listed, or classified, or recognised, components are used. Whetehr the part is called one thing or another depends on the specifice of the part.
Even if a differing part is used, according to UL, the listing is not actually "voided." It simply enters the "we don't know" category. That is, UL cannot itself say the listing was voided without evaluating the modification.
