Question Anyone tried this?

Hey guys I'm looking to install a voltage reducer for my ride and was wondering if anyone has ever used this reducer or is familiar with the manufacturer. Right now the only thing I want to hook up is a radio and a couple speakers but eventually hook up some lights. Think this will work for my application? I've asked about storing another battery on the cart and had good feedback on locations but am possibly steering away from that idea. What ya think?

It looks ok, no trigger wire though, so it would always be on...

Where are you in Missouri?

LOL..yeah Crash I liked the ones you showed me but later, like probebly in the next 2 to 3 months I want to make it "street legal" for cruising around the neighborhood. I just thought in order to do that, I need more amps to supply what I was eventually going to add. Or is that enough for that too? Also, what is the purpose of the trigger wire? I just figured the reducer ran constantly since its hooked directly to the battery pack. I was going to wire in a small fuse box to hook up everything else to so...now I guess I'm lost again...go figure

yep some people want the darn thing to turn off with a key .. with the one you posted you could use the red wire through the key, if you think you want to have it shut off
as for how big ya need .. 10 amp or 20 amp ??? hey some say bigger is better

thinking of street legal ...

this is sooo cool !! if i did not have lights i'd get these

Scottyb sells a nice 30 amp reducer on his site: http://www.cartsunlimited.net/DC_Reducer.html
I installed one on my cart and am very pleased with it. It has a wire for the key switch to shut it off when not in use. Reducers pull power from the pack when they're on, so if it was on all the time it would run the pack down quicker...
I would go ahead and get a big reducer now, so you won't ever need another one later. A 30 amp will cover all your accessories...
