Someone here may find this useful.
It's a 12volt UPS with a SLA charger in it. Requires a 15-18v input to
charge. 6A/10A load for $5

   It does look like it might be useful with my ASUS Eee 900A
Netbook.  Maybe with 60W worth of solar panels, thrown in
the mix.

 Thanks,

Neat board, but I'm trying to discover a purpose for it.
I was confronted with the same problem this board
was designed to solve.  Then I placed my load
permanently across my battery bank and put a
battery charger on a timer.  Most of the time my load
runs off the battery at C/60 or so.  Nights and
mornings the charger turns on to stir up the electrolyte
a little.  Works great, is cheap.
