Replacement for Next Step Regulator

I have been using an original Next Step voltage regulator for years. It is now failing and needs to be replaced. As Ample Power no longer exists, what is a similar replacement regulator??

Re: Replacement for Next Step Regulator

Depending on what you want to do, perhaps a Wakespeed WS-100 would be very straightforward, supports all bat types (except LiFePo4) and temp sensors.
