After reading that her village was on generator power, etc., I would
be suspicious of the health of that UPS. If the box has problems, it
may be because the UPS was unable to cope with the very heavy
prolonged workload. If the UPS does not have Automatic Voltage
Regulation, without using the battery, it would also have been working
harder?
