Correct me if I am wrong, but for the Tripp Lite vendor ID (09AE),  
there are two categories for the product ID:

  - 0001: use tripplite_usb (which is the Tripp Lite serial protocol  
stuffed over USB HID)

  - anything else: use usbhid-ups (which is HID Power Device Class)

The information that Chris and Leslie posted refers to PID 0001.

Note that the USB PID is completely separate from the  
"ups.firmware.aux" protocol number that tripplite_usb lists (which  
also has four digits).

Hope that clears things up a bit.
