There is no conclusive way to tell whether this particular model will  
be supported or not (it most likely is though). So if NUT support is  
important to you, I'd suggest to try this out before buying new

It is probably a decade old or so. Even when you replace the  
batteries, the (power) electronics inside will be old. It all depends  
on how well it was treated during its active service life whether or  
not it would be worth the money for a battery replacement. And how  
much trust would *you* still put in it?
