Hi guys,

I'm still away due to the MGE UPS SYSTEMS dismantling, and the
creation of MGE Office Protection Systems

I expect this to stop overloading me in around 2 weeks. So I'll get
back on NUT and the many subjects underway...

But I still follow lightly the ml. BTW, thanks a lot Arjen for your
excellent interim ;-)

well, this is a know behavior of the old Pulsar Ellipse. When
restarting after a shutoff, the battery level is set to 85 %, even if
the actual level is nearby 0, which was dumb and dangerous.

Newer models (Ellipse, Ellipse Max, Protection Center) now do the right thing...

Arjen already answered to the other points.
