96VDC -> 12VDC buck converter

Post by alec » Dec 06, 2017 2:25 pm

https://www.amazon.com/VOLTAGE-REDUCER- ... 96v+to+12v

Does anybody have experience with this buck converter?

Looking to install turn signals, headlights, taillights, etc. on my Greyborg and everything else seems straight forward except for the converter. I've done a lot of reading here on the forums and have heard that even some AC to DC "wall warts" will work for this purpose at 5% of the cost? Does anybody know which specific brands or types of wall warts will play friendly with relatively high voltage DC input?

Also, this is the rear light setup I'm attempting to mimic.

Sorry to add another thread on this topic, but we haven't discussed it in a year or so and perhaps somebody has come up with a new brilliant solution.

Thanks!

There's mention of a specific Toshiba ADP-60RH laptop supply in "How To Wire a 12V Brake Light and Turn Signals". Works nice.

At your high voltage, almost any one should work - the problem is usually getting them to start at low voltages (~45V) when they were designed for 110V.

Nice, thanks!
