That web page describes how the UPS works with the auto-shutdown code in Windows and OS X, but I don't think that applies to UPSes which work with the tripplite_usb driver (that would be more in line with usbhid-ups). Approximately when was this UPS manufactured?

I have a question for you guys, today after the UPS has come back to a
full charge I get a red light on the front of the UPS and I get this
from upsc:

matt at backup:~$ upsc tripplite
battery.charge: 100
battery.test.status: Battery bad - replace
battery.voltage: 14.56
battery.voltage.nominal: 12
device.mfr: Tripp Lite
device.model: OMNISMART500
device.type: ups
driver.name: tripplite_usb
driver.parameter.pollinterval: 2
driver.parameter.port: auto
driver.version: 2.4.3
driver.version.internal: 0.20
input.voltage: 109.23
input.voltage.nominal: 120
output.voltage: 113.5
ups.debug.load_banks: 0
ups.debug.V: 31 30 32 30 58 58 0d '1020XX.'
ups.delay.shutdown: 64
ups.firmware: F0966.A
ups.firmware.aux: protocol 2001
ups.mfr: Tripp Lite
ups.model: OMNISMART500
ups.power.nominal: 500
ups.productid: 0001
ups.status: OL
ups.vendorid: 09ae

Why does it say "battery.test.status: Battery bad - replace?"
