I have a Digitech MP5201 UPS and after a short stay in the hospital I came back to find the computer I use had been moved and the cables were all mixed up.


On the back panel it has 2 female sockets


Power cord==I connected that ok.


USB plug.


The tower is plugged into one of the female sockets and is running well.


What do I do with the remaining.


I have also lost the manual.

USB could be for many things such as a mouse, keyboard, printer, external drive, USB extension cable and/or hub, etc.

the USB port on a UPS is usually for UPS control. you usually have some software installed that can talk to the UPS, that way when certain conditions are met (like, battery life is X%) certain actions are taken...usually to gracefully shutdown the computer before the battery dies.
