Is this what might be considered a converter that you show above ? Thanks
I suppose the terms voltage reducer and converter can be used interchangeably, if that's what you're asking. I was careful to say 'electronic voltage reducer' because most of what you find for sale listed as a '12v to 6v converter' is nothing more than a resistor, and you know how well they work.

Good luck...
