This is enough to add it to the list of supported devices. You may  
wish to make sure that shutting down also works by running 'upsmon -c  
fsd' on the system that is designated as master for this UPS. You also  
seem to have an awfully outdated version of NUT, so upgrading is

Yes. This is not supported on devices using the Megatec/Q1 protocol,  
simply because there is no definition for this in the protocol. If  
this is important to you, an upgrade to nut-2.4.1 or later is needed.  
The blazer_ser driver (which supersedes the megatec driver) in that  
release will report an estimated runtime left if given the proper  
parameters in ups.conf. Make sure to read 'man 8 blazer' before asking  
for help.

Best regards, Arjen
Please keep list traffic on the list
