We've never found the USB interface entirely reliable, but serial and the
SNMP cards have both worked well for us.
A couple of caveats...
If you're using a serial cable, make sure it's wired correctly. It's not a
standard straight-through RS232 pinout.
Before you buy your new battery pack, check that you can get the old one
out first. They're inclined to swell as they age!
