ELENA - Wirtschaftsminister plant Nachbesserung

Well, in the last weeks my UPS battery died somewhat. At least the UPS wanted it to be exchanged against a new one. So I ordered a replacement unit and got the battery replaced. The funny thing is now: apcupsd recognize it as fully loaded, but with no remaining Run Time:

As you can see, it's somewhat strange. During loading the battery, apcupsd showed remaining run times of <2 mins, usually <1 min, sometimes 1.2 min or such. But after a reload of the browser, it was quite often <1 min again. Apcaccess is reporting this (excerpt):

Running a selftest with apctest shows no problem, apparently:

[code]Clearing previous self test result...CLEARED

Result of last self test: PASSED
[/code]

I wonder now how to proceed? Send the battery back? Try a newer version of apcupsd? Contact APC about the issue? Hmmm...

UPDATE:
After connecting the UPS to a laptop with Windows und PowerChute software, apcupsd reports >20 mins remaining time as well. Thanks for all hints & tips!
