Slightly tangential to your original issue, but do the values like load (as reported by NUT) generally track the front panel display? We have a number of CyberPower issues whose root cause is a disagreement as to how the HID descriptor (and therefore, the HID reports) should be parsed and interpreted. Link to the whole mess (which includes some other non-HID CPS issues):


That said, I don't think that differing load when on/off AC is going to fall into the HID category, but there are certainly a lot of open questions surrounding some of the reported values.

As Roger suggested, doing a manual self-test on the batteries may be useful. (I don't know if we should see it or not for this model, but I don't see a variable with self-test results in the upsc output.)
