But check for compatibility first.... Some APC's are fully supported
because they have the firmware to provide information to apcupsd and others
I have two cheap APC units here that are supported (Back-UPS ES 725 as
reported by APCACCESS) and one large one that isn't. It just can't
report the information to linux in the right format. It's about 8 years old
so by now maybe all of their units do support the proper format.
