Unfortunately, it is not very unique: the vendor can pick the string "USB UPS PPC", but the drivers match on the numeric IDs. Try 'usbconfig -d ugen1.3 dump_device_desc'

"no avail" is not one of our error messages... I just checked :-)

What was the error message from blazer_usb?

Given the usbconfig output above, you will either need to run the driver as root ("-u root" on the command line) or change the permissions ("chown uucp /dev/usb/1.3.*"). The /dev filesystem is volatile, so this will reset itself on the next boot.
