Default 12v LED lights, how to power them

So I am wanting to use some 12v 3w LED lamps on my Yeti.

I have a BEC set at 6v which runs my servo and other led's.

Two Guys Trail Gear has some TG-302 amber led's I want to use.

What I need to know is this,
What is the best way to step up 6v to 12v?

I do not want to use an additional battery, 9v or not.

I have seen some converters on ebay. However, I have no experience doing this so I'd appreciate some guidance.

Thank you

I run mine right off of the battery connection. 3s is what I run and the 12v led's work fine...if you wish you can put a switch in the wire to toggle on and off...mine are on all the time...they dont draw enough juice to worry about.
