I let this setup run overnight on a 7Ah gel-cell. This morning it had charged up to 15.8V and after resting for an hour or so, sits at 13.07V.

This circuit appears to be performing better than if I had just used a vanilla SS SSG with cap charger. The extra series-parallel cap bank seems to give it a "super-charge".

I have the PNP driver mods to add in yet, but I only have some MJE2955's at my disposal for now. (Thanks also to StevanC for coming up with that idea! ) After that I plan to scale up the SS SSG and the capacitor sizes as well.
