Really great idea! I'm wondering; if the capacitor in the snubber circuit were grounded instead of tied to Vin you could recover some of it's energy (instead of dissipating it all as heat in the resistor) and increase efficiency. Component specifications would change: the diode and capacitor would see higher voltages and probably the value for R would need to be tweaked.

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
