Would you suggest a condensator up-front and if yes what kind and size?
Or are lhe lights already protected on their own ?
No wanna fry them right away...
The lights are protected for reverse polarity, they will handle a pretty significant spike, up to 30v DC. I would not recommend a condensator (capacitor) unless the voltage drops below 8v which I don't think will happen with a properly maintained 12v battery.
