it looks like there have been some developments since you last tested
your UPS with NUT.

The megatec_usb driver now matches against your UPS's product and
vendor IDs, so there's a chance this driver will work with your UPS.

Would you be interested in grabbing the latest source tarball
(currently 2.2.0) and trying this driver?


The usual precautions apply - you may even want to temporarily plug
your computer directly into the wall or another UPS for testing, since
there's a small possibility that the UPS may shut down unexpectedly if
megatec_usb turns out to be the wrong driver.
