Yes I know, mine always returns 29.2... Too bad that the manufacturers
don't make it clearer when a thermal sensor is present and when it's
not. The only thing we can do, I suppose, is look at the UPS device name
string and have a blacklist in the driver for devices which are known
to not have a thermal sensor. The benefit might not be worth the
maintenance cost though.
