Description of problem:
For whatever reason, the nut tools need to be run with -u root (even when running them as root) to be allowed access to the devices.
I manually changed init script for ups to do this so that it now works for me and the device can be queried.

hi, thanks for reporting this. Seems there is some problem with udev rules and device permissions. Using -u root in init script is definitely wrong.
please check permissions that are used for your ups device. Use
to get list of usb devices. Find UPS in the output, for example:
> Bus 004 Device 003: ID 0463:ffff MGE UPS Systems UPS
important numbers are Bus 004 and Device 003. Get file permissions of
ls -l /dev/bus/usb/<Bus number>/<Device number>
for my example it'd be
ls -l /dev/bus/usb/004/003
> crw-rw-r-- 1 root uucp 189, 386 2009-05-25 20:34 /dev/bus/usb/004/003
