yep, I forgot the device claiming which implies to have the USB
VendorID and ProductID.
please, give us these back. You can obtain these using lsusb for example.
Then, to test the support for your unit, simply use:
newhidups -DDD  -u root -x explore -x vendorid=XXXX auto

completing the XXXX for vendorid with your specific entry.
Note that you can also put the above in ups.conf. For more info, refer
to the manpage

This will allows us to add this to the supported list of devices in
newhidups / usbhid-ups.
