Default Lithium/ 12 volt accessory

I am installing my Nissan Leaf Batteries (almost finished). I want to connect a voltage reducer (12v) to the lithium batteries. The 12v side will be for Lights/music and maybe a phone charger. Has anyone done this or is everyone adding a deep cycle battery to run accessories. I don't like the idea of having to add another battery.

If you have added the voltage reducer, which one did you use, 56.4v to 12v.

I run a reducer. Works fine. It's switched by the ignition. It came with my cart. Still works the same with Lithium 14S vs the 48V FLA batteries.

Same experience here, I'm using the same 48-12v reducer on my lithium pack that I used on my old lead acid pack. Mine too is controlled by the key switch.

I'm running lithium for the traction pack and more lithium for the onboard 12v source.

2P14S for traction.
2P4S for lights/stereo.

I have a 12v lead acid charger that stops at 16.4v which is 4.1vpc.

I dunno guys. My 12V marine battery runs all accessories. My winch's and lights. I'm a big fan of separate systems.....such as my rear drum brakes being factory and my front being hydraulic Jakes. Just last week I hit a rock that bent the rear passenger side brake cable holder. (That metal is a good 3/8ths thick so I must have whacked something pretty good) The cable then popped out and all I had was front disc and one rear brake. I could still stop on all but the steepest hills.

About a month ago I went out to "test" how long my lithium pack would run on the hilly area that I hunt. Well......the cart LV triggered and I had to walk to get my truck (walking past 200-200 yards is a very real challenge for me) and when I got to the cart I had no problems winching the cart onto the truck. Separate 12V setup.

But.....that's just me.

FWIW
