Watts is the big question. Small equipment 12 volts is fine but as the demand or wattage increases 120 volts is better because the amps are less and the cable size is smaller to handle the ampacity.

120 volts is ten times bigger than 12 volts.

As they are both voltages, we could say they are "the same" but only in the sense that "they are both of the same species". It is similar to saying: "A huge bull elephant is the same as a baby elephant.".

But it is not much help to say that kind of thing if what you are trying to do is understand how voltages - and elephants - behave!

If you connect a 1.5 volt device to a 12 volt power supply it will burn out in a short time. Vice- versa will not be successful either.

With a AC to DC converter. You'd need to use a 115 AC to 12 volt DC converter. Connect the wires from the item you want to convert to the 12 volt positive and negative on the front of the converter. Plug the converter into a wall outlet and then turn on the switch on the converter. 115 is going into the converter but 12 volts is coming out and into the item you wanted converted.
