Hello All

I just discoverd NUT and I'm lovin' it. I was very successful getting
nut to monitor a CyberPower UPS along with having a Linux slave for a
friend of mine. I've come to a snag on my personal system though. I
currently have two Back-UPS XS 1200 APC UPSs, and I'm seeing
notifications of low battery on both units.

Now, both units are not showing 'low battery' on the physical units,
and they are definitely holding a charge. Also, I'm noticing that temp
is 'off'. I was wondering if someone can help me out with this problem.

I'm currently using the newhidups driver. Here is my output from upsc

battery.charge: 1

Is there a better driver I should be using? Also, I get the same exact
output with both UPSs

Thanks in advance.
