Hi guys,

Thanks much again,

After making another test under load (without taking the batteries), NUT
now reports:
ups.status: ALARM OL
ups.alarm: Battery voltage too low!

So you were right: I'm going for a battery replacement ;)

Again thanks much for all, specially to Charles Lepple for the detailed

>> On the other hand I'm looking to get a Salicru SPS, I've read some good
