The control section uses less than 5 watts, so you could even use the last battery (connected to ground) in your series string to power it, and it's such a puny power requirement that I don't think it would get too out of balance, but I don't know.
That. Is. Awesome.

For my idea, id need the 12v auxiliary anyway..
