Default Voltage Confusion with 16 to 12

Why is it that everything I read here about voltage conversions refers to 16 volt when talking about a 48 volt system???

Yes, but I do not know how to connect to it. It was posted here on 5-11-2009 @ 7:24am by John Dirt titled "Best way to add lights on page 30.

The reason they talk about 16v reduced to 12 is because most of the 48v carts consisted of 8v batteries ... only later did CC go to four 12v batteries and I understand they are going back to the 8v?
What is you question?

Why would 16 volts be an issue with 8 volt batteries?

On a 6 volt batt system you can take 2 batts to make 12 volts.

You cant do that on a 8 volt system because you end up with 16 volts. You have to reduce down to 12.

I have copied the post in question - I see by your profile you have a 48V CC. You can get a 10Amp converter for 59.99 that converts 16V to 12V. For 79.99 you can get one that converts 48V to 12. Thermo protector and all. This is your best invest as you draw from the full battery block. Do a little shopping with the sponsors and you might find it for less. You should be ok to add a radio with the 10amp. but consider a 20/25 amp converter and then you can put in a microwave as well!!
