Thanks all for the quick responses on the question (always a good sign of
this mailing list).

(Tim Dawson, Manuel Wolfshant):
Regarding root cause of my current problem pointing to a faulty battery,
this is not the first time that someone points to it. However I made a
simple test with the vendor tools (Windows) and didn't found any issue, as
well as they discharged normally (although only tested without load).

I have no other ways to test the battery themselves, I'm not quite
electricity-tech to make some hackish testing (and dangerous).

(David Zomaya).
Regarding Tripplite, I found many active threads on the mailing list so I
consider it everytime as an alternative, however those devices are a bit
pro/expensive too and they are harder to get/find support on my country
compared with other vendors. However feel free to suggest a model like the
Ellipse ECO 1200VA (in power and price).

Also I found many reports of NUT working devices on the mailing list which
are not reported on the HCL (https://networkupstools.org/stable-hcl.html)
which makes me ask if this list is maintained/updated as well as the
acknowledges section (https://networkupstools.org/acknowledgements.html)

As Bartosz pointed out, I think many of us would like to know of
recommended vendors either for their products quality or for their support
to NUT project.
