Default Christmas Lights How?

Hello,

Wondering if I can get some input on how to run Christmas lights, not only on electric cart, but gas as well. Actually going to be Halloween lights! LOL
I know I should only use LED to cut down draw. But what type of DC to AC inverter/converter do I need, and how to install.

Cart 1: 48 Volt Club Car, has cigarette lighter /accessory plug
Cart 2: 2016 EZGO Gas

Thanks!

You need a small inverter. With LED lights, you don't need a whole lot of power. It would connect to your 12V source.

If I have a 48 to 12 volt reducer already wired up for headlights, stereo, etc, can't I use a 12 volt to 110 as well? And plug into my accessory plug?

Yes, as long as you watch the load...the cig. Lighter socket may not handle the load...look at the wires going to the socket to see what size they are...be careful if the plug or socket get hot.

Why not use 12v LED Christmas lights through the lighter socket?
Amazon has them.
