asked by on

Is it possible for me to modify a 12 volts battery to get a 6 volts battery.,.

My car has 43161 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

A: Hello there, it would be possible to modify...

Hello there, it would be possible to modify a 12 volt into a 6 volt battery, but it would require an expensive step down converter and the cost would outweigh any gains. 6 volt batteries are typically used in golf carts and many industrial applications and should be readily available at many stores in your area.
