I Wonder If anyone can point me to or tell me why a diode is used instead of a resister to reduce the voltage of the battery? I remember little about things electrical!! And anyone that's done the conversion themselves pm me or mail me details not covered by that page on Rokker files? It'd be easier IF you mailed me at home but I can try to figure out the PMing way here as I've done it on other sites! Or has this thread died? RIP Happy Holidays People!!
