Best Raid For Mac

Got a mac pro raid card in my macpro and i have configured 2 x 1TB drives as Raid 1.
I am concerned at the frequency at which the Raid utility calls my attention to a battery problem. Last week i waited 12 hours while the raid utility conditioned my battery. Today i received a red light warning message:
'Battery failed (code 0x#0 = 18)'
and then write cache was disabled due to insufficient charge.
My Raid utility seems to disable write cache to insufficient charge all too regulrly. How often does this normally happen? How long should a Raid card battery last?
The raid card is less than one year old and i am surrprised at how many times ive had reports of insufficient battery charge in the raid.
I'd love to hear other peoples experiences ether with similar battery life or whether your battery is operating charged without these problems?
Should i get the battery replaced?
