I'd imagine there is a heat issue that would have to be dealt with dropping it that much also.

Former Space electrical power need alert. DC-DC converters exist change voltages without all the heat resistors entail.

They convert DC to AC and back again to change the voltage.
I'm guessing that the cost would be high and the efficiency poor

Here is some info on it:

Thank you. That article answered just about everything I was wondering about. DC to DC converters have been around for a long time. I can see at this stage, that staying with tried and true automotive technology based on 12vdc would make a lot of sense.
Also, the power cutoff relay was what I was thinking the kicker would be.
