I haven't had a chance to look over the entire patch in detail, but what we try to do with the drivers is keep the number of calculated values to a minimum, and only report what the UPS directly reports.

If there are general values like state-of-charge of the battery which are not provided by the UPS, those are sometimes calculated, but they often require a lot of configuration parameters (so it is obvious to someone debugging their setup). If you do calculate a value, make sure you mention it in the driver documentation.

Thanks for posting your patch!
