Note that when interpreting values from lsusb, the members starting  
with "i" are indices (in this case, indexing the string descriptors).

The index for iManufacturer seems to be "1", and the value that you  
specify in the configuration file is the portion *after* that index  
("MGE UPS SYSTEMS" or "EATON", depending on how new the unit is).
