Arduino based Alternator Regulator Project

For those of you who are interested in keeping your batteries properly charged while protecting your alternator and extending battery life (aren't we all), I'd like to call your attention to an interesting project which has been undertaken by a fellow cruiser named Al Thomasom. Al started this project a few years back because he was experiencing the same issues that many of us have also encountered: Under charged batteries, short battery life, and alternator failures. If any of that sounds familiar you should take a look at his blog site and get a feel for what he has accomplished. I have no financial interest in his efforts, just an interested spectator who has fought some of the same battles.
