Russ, Thank you for your reply to my question. The reason that I need the "Split" of Voltage is that One lead is going to Marking Lights on an RC Airplane, and it will require 2/3rd's of the voltage. The remainder 1/3rd will go to a Landing light. Power needs to be constant and reliable so not to drain the battery or burn out the lights prematurely. I have come to the conclusion that a 2.25 Amp current is required. Though this is my first Electronic project and I am totally out of my expertise, I plan on getting it right. I will check into the "Switching Regulator" to Satisfy my curiosity, and maybee it may be the solution that I am looking for. I believe in the "KISS" theory. Too many parts just make it that much easier to break down, but it still needs to be reliable.
