I think the battery is installed, but it is a really really old battery. I will 
try to do a battery test now that it doesn't power anything at all, hopefully a 
monitor is enough to do the load test. I could also try to open it and see if 
the battery is connected.

ps: in my new UPS Eaton 5SC I could not see a battery manufacture date in the 
extended tree data from nut-cgi :-/ so I wrote the install date on a sticker and 
put it on it.
