The /dev/hiddev* devices are a red herring, and will usually disappear  
after you get the right NUT driver running.

It looks like that device ID has been in usbhid-ups since 2008. What  
version of NUT are you running?

For debugging, you can also try adding "-u root", since if that  
version of NUT isn't aware of that particular model, it will not set  
the permissions properly on the /dev/bus/usb node.
