[Mikrotik] 433AH

  Most anything over 26-27 volts will make the 433AH not happy.   Best 
to use a DC-DC converter that puts out a true 24V.  I've also just put 
three silicon diodes in series on the +V power lead.  Each diode drops 
~~ .7 volts,  so three of them would drop 28 volts down to 25.9 volts.

Kind of silly putting such a narrow voltage tolerance on this kind of 
device (IMO).  All of our remote sites, solar or AC powered are running 
straight from the float voltage on a 24V battery array.
