The choice is yours and many choose to mount an additional 12 volt deep cycle in the bag well just for accessories. By the time you do this you will have spent just as much and you'll have to charge it independently.......
What I was getting at is that there are reducers for half that price . . . the one I use is 20 amps for $65 . . .

I have the same as well on my cart and I run lights, radio,back up lights, and an extra 12v outlet, so there is no need to spend the big money unless you need the extra amps.

This is the one I bought . . . I like it because of the trigger wire that can be wired to the ignition to provide the ability to turn the reducer on/off with ignition switch . . .


48v-12v reducer

Most of those DO NOT draw from the whole battery pack. This still places undue wear on one or two batteries........your call!

Sorry it is a 48v to 12v reducer the only way it will work is from all of the batteries...and I am pretty sure Steve and myself are only talking about 48v to 12v reducers

Yep, had mine that way going on a year now and it works great. I have a battery tender hookup hanging off of it so it's easy to just plug in and charge now and then. Runs my lights and stereo great.

Sorry to bring this topic back up but I have another quick question. I bought a voltage suppressor and now decided to go with the extra 12v battery.

I am looking for something small that will do the job. Any options on the Odyssey PC625? It seems small and light. Will it work for what is described above? Also, any alternative small marine battery suggestions?

Thanks,
T.Wells
