6 VDC to 12VDC Converter

6 volts to 12 volts converters DC to DC

This inverter circuit can provide up to 800mA of 12V power from a 6V supply. For example, you could run 12V car accessories in a 6V car. The circuit is simple, about 75% efficient and quite useful. By changing just a few components, you can also modify it for different voltages.
