My guess is each conversion is probably about 80% efficient. If you guys have suggestions I'm all ears. This just seemed like a easy and inexpensive way to get done what I am attempting. I'm no electronics expert.

That is what is great about Redpoints idea, it's very simple and has less components. The only issue I see with it is that it uses a very small percentage of the capacity of the lithium battery, and the battery is the largest cost. This is my attempt to reduce the cost.
