A DC to DC Converter, also known as DC/DC Converters, is a device that converts Direct Current (DC) of a certain voltage of the input to another voltage for the output.
Typically used in Singapore cars and motor vehicles to convert cars which operate on 12V to heavy motor vehicles that operate up to 24V.

What to look our for when purchasing a DC-DC Converter?
Before purchasing a DC-DC Converter, you must first identify the purpose that the converter will be used for. It is best to check the intended device ampere so that you can match the right DC-DC Converter to it. Normally low power draw devices will require a smaller ampere rating compared to higher power draw devices.
Most DC-DC Converters will have a power rating that is assigned to it. For example, the 20A DC-DC Converter from earlier has a 20A power rating. This means that it can take a maximum of 20A on a single load. It also has a 15A Continuous rating. This means that it can provided 15A of continuous load.
It is best to get a DC-DC Converter that rated higher than your devices or application. This will ensure the longevity of your DC-DC Converter as it will be stressed and worn out that quickly.
