# How to convert 24v to 12v lights

TL;DR Too Long; Didn't Read Because lights are designed to work within a narrow voltage range, connecting a single 12-volt light to a 24-volt power supply quickly destroys a light, whether it's a standard incandescent or an LED. Insert bulbs into the holders.

Both bulbs will light up and run on the 24-volt supply as if they have two 12-volt supplies. If you really like a particular 24vdc led light fixture, find someone locally that has some basic electronic skills and have him take a look! This is like an inverter that draws off the batteries harder at 11 volts than at 14 volts to maintain a stable 125 VAC.

## Using a 12V LED Strip in a 24V System

Feb 14, 2016 19. When the power is switched on, the first bulb's operation creates 12 volts of resistance, allowing the second bulb to operate as though it is on a 12-volt system. Nov 2010 Location: Browse by Username. Because LEDs operate without a heated filament, they can be wired into an overpowered system, but the excess voltage must be dealt with first.

Power Electronics. The Projects Forum. The module operates in the neighborhood of 30-34 volts, and the power supply converts 3-35 V input ie, my 12 volt to 3-35 V output.

## how can i convert 24v to 12v?

If you only want to use a single 12-volt LED on your 24-volt system, you can make use of resistors attached to the circuit to lower the voltage to appropriate levels. Dec 21, 2014 81 8. Feb 14, 2016 9. AARE Engine: Aug 1, 2013 7,286 2,050.

The power, in this example, is 6 watts. Last edited: Sciencing Video Vault.
