Default voltage reducer clarificating

I have recently bought a 2008 club car Ds 48v with 4 12v batteries. I will be soon adding a few accessories for hunting(headlights, 4x4 lights, and 12v outlet) I was wondering how many 12v attachments can you attatch to one 10amp voltage reducer. Thanks for any response or help to my question.

With what you are wanting to add to the cart you need a 20 to 30 amp voltage reducer. Scotty B has them (site sponsor)

Get a 20a minimum, 30a to be sure and make sure it can be switched off when not in use. I prefer having a dedicated battery myself.

I agree, get at least a 20 amp. 10 amp is only good for about 2 headlights...
And don't forget, Amperage= Wattage/Voltage, so a 55w headlight divided by 12v is about 4.5 amps then times 2 would be 9...

I have had the 10-15 amp units fail when the radio was turned on with the lights
That is why we only sell the 30 amp units.

The heavier gauge cables allow for increased amperage flow with less resistance. This allows the motor to produce more torque.
