12vdc Regulated Output

I am installing some LED Ribbon (Amazon.com: 5 Meter Reel Warm White 3100k Flexible LED Ribbon 300 Leds 16 Ft by LEDwholesalers, 2026ww-31k: Home Improvement) and want regulated 12v. I want a DC/DC converter the coverts my battery power to 12v output. I know most good light fixtures have one inside, but cannot find one available retail that can handle 2 amps. Anyone know where to find them?

Re: 12v DC Regulated Output

I installed LED rope lamps from Amazon (actually two 6' strings) in my boat as cove lighting in the saloon without any regulator.
No problems.

Newmar’s power array of dc conditioners provide stabilizing voltage during engine crank, voltage stabilizers with Isolated DC-DC converters, electronic noise filters and automatic powe

Actually for that application a the PWM dimmer controller from Amazon would work for you.
