You UPS doesn't report the battery charge, so that's not unusual. The  
megatec driver will guesstimate the battery charge based on the  
battery voltage, but this is very unreliable.

See 'man 8 megatec' for answers how to fix the above two problems.

Better yet, change to the 'blazer_ser'  driver instead, which uses a  
better way to determine state of charge (based on a couple of  
parameters you need to provide). Make sure to read 'man 8 blazer'  
before returning here for help.
