I bought one to use a 12v fridge in my 24v lorry from Maplins.

Just run one cable from one end of the battery chain and the other cable from half way down the chain and you'll have 12V.

We have 240 system with a 12v pump and we run it through a battery charger which acts as an inverter, works fine.
