   Definitely use a switching regulator.  But you probably already knew 

   I'd stick a microcontroller in there to monitor voltage and current, 
display them on an LCD, and make them available on a serial port.  This 
is nearly trivial to do with modern microcontrollers, and would make 
things rather nice.  I could do that part for you if you want.
