    Default 4x4 extra Halogen Lights Help Required

    Dear All,
    For my new ride I have got two (Mirage Fighter Aircrafts Landing Lights) they are just like HIDS,Ultra White,Very powerfull, But one problem arises.They work on 24 Volts & my Rocky Battery is 12 Volts (125 Ampares).
    One local electrition adviced me that we can install one smaller battery & can create 24 Volts only for these lights.
    As they are like sealed beams we can not change the tubes.
    Need help & advices to resolve the issue.Plz reply on your earliest.
    Regards,
    fahad

    The idea of the electrician is very practical. Get a small 24 volt battery and connect one wire for charging it. Run ur lights on that battery.

    @Offroad,

    What's the Wattage on these things? Go for a DC/DC Convertor. Here's a link:

    Hope this helps,

    a a 12v to 24 convertor is your solution... one can be designed according to the wattage/ampere rating of your lights

    price needs to be checked from college road... i think ghazi electronics is a place... they make UPS and stabilizers... they can make convertor to your specs.

    i think the price will be around 3000 but u will save alot of space... the convertor will be small device
