There are a couple of errors in the article.  References to 33W resistors should of course be 33Ω - the symbol font in my Word doc got ignored.   And the schematic shows these as 39Ω  - which is what I think I eventually used - they give a slightly lower charge rate of 62 - 23 mA. 

Thanks for the comment, Docdivicar!
