As long as your Battery charging voltage does not exceed the rated
voltage of the ITX or the Phidgets then , you should have no worries.
I would recommend you find out the max voltages of your peripherals
first. Then use a regulated power supply of 13.8Vdc or less
Personally, I'd recommend plonking the money down on a good battery
charger -- the OP will find his batteries last a whole lot longer. I use
the Battery Tender Plus for my 7.2AH and under 12 volt batts.
SLAs aren't as sensitive to poor charging regimes as are NiCads, but
they're still surprisngly sensitive.

Sorry, I guess I misread this the first time, thinking you were talking
about Nicad/NIMH batteries.
SLA or Gel and a float charger works fine for this sort of service, as long
as the battery is rated for deep cycle service, and the charger is adjusted
I run my ham radio gear this way, loads of 200-400W with a 25AH battery and
a simple "one-stage" float charger.
