Belkin UPS

Three of the last four weekends I have woken to the house having been reset by a power failure at about 7am. Last weekend, Catherine was so annoyed she rang the local power company, who claimed that a squirrel had fried itself in the power lines. Finally fed up, I have purchased the cheapest UPS I could find which seemed to be up to my power requirements. It’s the $40 USD Belkin 200 watt 375VA UPS. It’s a USB device for the purpose of managing shutdown, and there doesn’t appear to be a linux driver. The USB device identifier is “050d:0375 Belkin Components” and I’ll keep you posted if I find a driver.
