upsrw listed the values that may be changed, but it would not change
them. When I try it asks for a username/password.  I tried root,
nut (the user "built into" nut), and the single user entry in 
upsd.users.  In all cases this happened:

% /usr/local/ups/bin/upsrw -s battery.charge.low=25 -u root
apcups at localhost 
Unexpected response from upsd: ERR ACCESS-DENIED

This is nut 2.2.2 built from source.

Possibly relevant, the password for the upsd.users account is 23
characters long.  Too long for the software maybe???  It works ok
with upsmon though.
