Yes it's the same, it's that board that I was trying to add into Clive's original circuit to protect the battery, before I knew it wasn't substantial enough for what I wanted to do. What worries me about the circuit you gave me, is that I have no idea how it works, or how to change it for different loads, sometimes I might want to increase or decrease the amount of light sources for different outdoor projects. So that coupled with the many parts makes me feel like I did when I first started designing speakers and crossovers. Now I'm capable of making really good speakers with crossovers measured and designed by myself, it took me years to learn though, when it comes to diodes and transistors it's all new to me.The circuit in post #16 will handle the 170 ma.
Is your charger/protection board the same as that shown in post #14? I can add that to the circuit if you like.
Your comment about how complex the circuit looks reminds me of when a senior engineer gave the schematic of a groundplane video board he wanted wired up. I looked at it and complained "Why does it have so many parts?!" His answer "Because it takes that many parts to make it work!" We were friends for years after that.
These are the parts I have,
