Default Lighting/Wiring Question From A Rook

I just bought a 2004 Club Car IQ, and I want to add head/tail lights. I dont like the factory style, square headlights that mount in the fiberglass. Instead, I want to install some baja style round lights on the front bumper. Everything I've found in the stores is 12 volt. I understand that since my cart is 48v I will have to add a converter. I've found them (converters) on ebay from $60-$85. My local cart guy wants about $110. I'm completely new to the cart world (about a week old). Is this normally what people do to run 12v accesories? Add a converter? It seems like a pretty easy project......is it?

Much Thanks

Default Re: Lighting/Wiring Question From A Rook

There are 2 types of voltage converters/reducers. One type will hook into all the batteries and then cut the voltage down to 12. The other type only hooks up to 2 of the 8 volt batteries and then uses a simpler and cheaper voltage reducer to cut the 16 down to 12 volts. This second type is less desirable if you are going to use the lights for an extended period of time because it drains the batteries at uneven rates, and this will also effect the recharging. The best solution is the first type where all batteries are used together, but the second type will work.

But yes you need to add a converter/reducer or else you will be popping bulbs from overvoltage
