NUT has two drivers supporting Mustek hardware. I wrote "powermust", not 

I recommend you to use "powermust", as "mustek" doesn't support 24V 
UPSes like yours (that's why there is always 100% charge). Besides, 
"powermust" has more features.

I'm CC'ing this to upsdev, because I think it doesn't make sense to keep 
both "mustek" and "powermust" around. "powermust" supports everything 
"mustek" supports, and more, and better. So... :)
