Oxford heated vest with rechargeable power pack
on: 23 December, 2020, 08:40:49 PM
Hi guys recently picked up a used but as new heated vest, it is the Oxford one which you charge with a plug in  wall  charger. It's says on the label that it's a 7.4 volt. The vest is working superbly however I was wondering if there was any way of powering it from the battery on the bike in the event of the vest running out of power while out on the bike. I don't know anything about electronics but I know the bike is 12v and the vest is 7.4 volt is there anything lead wise that would step down 12v to 7.4, thanks John
