Benitez-7 Passes Go

Image: I decided to swap out the 1K resistor for a 200 Ohm, and instead of the diode or a regular bipolar transistor I installed the IRF510 MOSFET to resolve the connections...    Image: The moment of truth test of the Benitez-7 using a 555 timer. The board didn't smoke, the IC took the two different voltage sources just fine, the battery charging function is ok, but the LED power meter indicates 6.8 - 7V going into the 12V positive rail...
