    Got a mini converter that I used to use in the truck 24v to 12v. Question can you buy a converter that goes the other way??? 12v to 24v.

    Check the links in the third post again - they do convert in the direction you want, ie 12v in, 24v out.

    I lived in Newcastle for 4 years once upon a time. Someone I knew there, who was not local described geordies as "like Scotsmen, but missing the brains". He said this you understand, not me.

    They are available. I looked at a 12 volt to 36 volt for charging my electric bike direct from the 12 volt supply to save running the inverter.
