DC-DC Converters

DC-DC Converters, or buck converters, are little electronic circuits which help you power your devices directly from your battery. They convert voltage and current to suit your load. This can be from a higher voltage to a lower one or vice versa.

Buck-Converters come in two variants:
– the buck-down converters lower the voltage from your source to match the device or load you want to power (eg power a 12V light from a 24V battery)
– the buck-boost converters raise the voltage from your source (eg power a 19V laptop from a 12V battery)

DC-Converters come in different sizes and power outputs. Some are adjustable for voltage and current which makes them the perfect candidate to build your own battery charger from your solar system.
