try to run the driver in debug mode so that we can see what data is 
actually sent by the UPS

#usbhid-ups -DDDD -u root -a $YourUpsName

where $YourUpsName is the one you used in /etc/ups/ups.conf

After a few seconds the output will start to repeat so ctrl-c and 
examine whatever was collected. and maybe zip it and send it to the list.
