    Hi,

    I am working on a custom project that runs at 6v. I have two 6v batteries in parallel for longer "play time".

    However, randomly I will want to activate 12v linear actuators.
    The actuators will be triggered via a remote controlled relay system, so im needing the 12v constant to the relay so whenever I trigger it, its ready to power the actuators.

    Is there / how can I maintain both 6v and 12v from the same two batteries?

    Thank you

    You are going to need a boost converter to step the 6 volts up to 12 volts. Something like this depending on the 12 volt load.
