Default alarm system battery backup, battery replacement question

Sounds like you are talking about them being wired in series, for 12 volt
function. So a single would need to be a 12 volt unit., at 5 amps.
Perhaps such as at http://store.yahoo.com/batterysupplyco/index.html

I have two 6-volt, 2.7AH batteries, connected together to my alarm
system. (Batteries are connected to each other by a wire on one end,
connected to the system by the other end)
It seems expensive to get two of these batteries at about $20 each.
Can I replace these with a single battery of the same type or do I
need to buy 2?
Would a single 6-volt 5.4AH do the same thing?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Actually, an exact replacement would be 12V, 2.7 AH, but
anything equal to or greater than 2.7AH will be fine.

The truth as I perceive it to be.
Your perception may be different.
