have you tried to run 'nut-scanner -U' to find out the serial
number of the UPS, so that you can use it to identify each

# nut-scanner -U

Scanning USB bus.
        driver = "usbhid-ups"
        port = "auto"
        vendorid = "051D"
        productid = "0002"
        product = "Back-UPS BR  800 FW:9.o4 .I USB FW:o4"
        serial = "3B763X76344"                             # <<<
        vendor = "American Power Conversion"
        bus = "002"

This output would mean that you need to add the following entry
to your configuration:

serial = 3B763X76344
