I think we're on the same page for the battery date. What about the date of manufacture for the UPS - does 2012 seem reasonable?

yes, line break, and each of the commands you put in quotes should all be on one line. What does "echo $SHELL" say? (I'm assuming something like /bin/sh or /bin/ksh, but it might be csh-based.)

You can also try without the "2>&1" - I forget which parts go to stdout and which go to stderr (that attempts to redirect stderr to stdout, which then gets piped to tee).
