edit to the above email: Sorry I don’t have any experience with the 12V batteries, or 12V to 5V.
I would note that the Mayfly1.0 charger is different than 0.5b, and I’m seeing that it wants a slightly higher+5V than the Mayfly 0.5b for it to do a 0.5A charge of the LiIon battery. I am using USB charging monitor “USB Meter” to monitor the charge rate.
I definitely agree with @ckillen that whatever methods’ are used, some monitoring is required to figure out where the power goes and is it working as expected
