Re: Load1 36v down to 12v

That should work, but something like this would be cheaper, and it is sealed. https://www.ebay.com/i/254089911666?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=254089911666&targetid=883071789526&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9032016&poi=&campaignid=9344508364&mkgroupid=96003368313...
