Definitely not.  SLAs are like car batteries - full discharge bad for battery life.  You might be thinking of NiCads.

but how do you regulate power in the battery for charging, specifically so you don't cook the battery and destroy it?

Quite frankly, I don't care what you have heard, in actual expereince I have left batts plugged in for weeks at a time without any problems, as well as draining the old crap out of them with no problems either.  Honestkly Matt, with the ps you have got going, I wouldn't ever worry about fully discharging that batt, as there is no way you wil ever drain it to the extent to which you are talking about.

I can't wait for friday!!!!  My five month moe hiatus is OVER!
