Ubuntu repos. I may file a bug, but come to think of it, I wonder if
its was because I plugged in the UPS before installing the
packages...and thus the udev rule didn't fire.
Does it re-trigger all the rules after an install of the nut package?

If there is no "upsrw" variable available to adjust, it means one of two things: the UPS can't adjust this limit, or we don't know how to adjust it. [update: I see that this is not listed in the upsrw output. bummer.]

Given the sorry state of the "PowerAlert" software from Tripp-Lite, I am
very grateful to those who created this driver.
