    36V DC to 6V AC Inverter - Such a Beast?

    I had hoped to run a Busch & Muller Lumotec IQ2 179B on my bike but it has been pointed out to me that it required a 6V AC power source and of course the current from a e-bike battery is DC and hence my DC to DC converter is not going to do the trick. I have done a bit of search without luck...
