Default 48v-12v converter

Does anyone have a suggestion for a 48v-12v converter? I had a cheaper one I installed in my 97' cc Reagan that I converted to a IQ. The first one blue out at about eight months. The vendor replaced it but now the second one went after about 2-3 months. I only use it for lights but I may put a horn and possibly a radio on it. Quality at a reasonable price with good recomendations would be great! Thanks Guys!

everyone has their own favorites but if your adding more than lights don,t buy a cheapie....................like i said everyone has a favorite so your gonna get several different ones..........i,m not sure who makes this one but it seems all the newer C.C,s have the same one installed i know its aftermarket and runs about 80 bucks but i have havn,t seen any issues with it and its a very compact size and easy hook up.................its about the size of the voltage regulator ion gas C.C,s so finding a place to mount it is a breeze.....everyone i have seen is mounted right in the middle of battery pack.......if your adding a radio get one that will handle the amps and is fusable or at least put a in-line fuse in........................................

I sell a 30 amp - 400 watt capacity 36-48 > 12v reducer with an on-off switch circuit for $128. A lot of the cheaper units stay on all the time which is one reason why they burn out.

That looks good Scottyb, wish I would have got that one, mine did not have a switch so I got a high voltage toggle switch and keep it off unless I am using it, lights only at this time.

Another good switch is a relay like the ones in the battery chargers. Then have the key switch activate the relay, the reducers should not be on all the time.

How does this connect to precedent wiring harness or does it? I have 2010 Precedent with 6-8V batteries.

Connections are simple enough. There are 2 wires for 36-48v input and 2 wires for 12v output. The install diagram is below and there are clear wire by wire written instructions included as well. It comes with a fuse in line on the main 48v positive in (red). Smaller size makes it easier to locate. 7x4x2
