Sorry, I misread the man page for upsc.  I went back, re-read it and 
then typed

rprice at glacon2:~> upsc -l
rprice at glacon2:~> upsc -L
Eaton-66781: Eaton Ellipse ASR 1500 USBS
rprice at glacon2:~> upsc `upsc -l` battery.charge

which is correct.

My upsmon.conf MONITOR line is

MONITOR Eaton-66781 at localhost 1 upsmaster sekret master

and upsd.users says

 	password = sekret
 	upsmon master

so the user and password match.  Is this enough to be "appropriately 
privileged", or do I need more?
