    No, is the simple answer. Even with circuit modifications, the voltage is too high for components U1 and U2.

    Hello,

    Yes, it can be altered.
    You will need special parts for the high voltage.
    Those parts will not be cheap.
    What type of battery do you have?
    What is the capacity of the battery?

    Greetings,
