Please see the newhidups(8) man page, section IMPLEMENTATION.

       The  driver  ignores the "port" value in ups.conf. Unlike previous ver-
       sions of this driver, it is now possible to control multiple UPS  units
       simultaneously  with  this driver. They can be distinguished by setting
       some combination of the "vendor", "product", "serial", "vendorid",  and
       "productid" options. For instance:

                 driver = newhidups
                 port = auto
                 vendorid = 0463
                 driver = newhidups
                 port = auto
                 vendorid = 09ae

Arnaud: this is now a frequenly asked question. Should we add the info
on the newhidups "port" value to INSTALL, section 7?
