The problem is not in the configuration file, it's the version of NUT  
you're using. Before nut-2.2.2, the megatec/megatec_usb driver would  
declare a UPS stale on the first error. Especially for USB, an  
occasional error is normal (which may be due to EMI or plugging  
another USB device) so the driver shouldn't warn about that if it can  
reconnect immediately.

There is nothing you can do about this in the configuration file, you  
need to upgrade NUT to version 2.2.2 or newer to fix this.

Best regards, Arjen
