 How to install batteries correctly guide page. 

 

One of the most common questions at our help desk at www.securesupplies.biz is the question about batteries linked in series and parallel and the effect of voltage and amperage output, to help we have created a simple guide to show cause and effect of batteries joined together to form battery banks when connecting to HHO Hydrogen installs.

 

A popular misconception especially in the house boat community is when joining batteries together in parallel that the existing cables are ok 

and are re-used, in fact when joining batteries together in parallel the amperage of the batteries is increased therefore new heavier duty cable is required to avoid the cables burning out.

 

12 VOLT  Batteries joined in series

Batteries joined together in Series have the effect of doubling the voltage but the Amps stay constant as the diagram above using identical batteries (of the same voltage and Ampere-hours) shows,

 

Configuration: 2 x 12V 60Ah connected in series = 24V 60Ah output,

Ampere-Hour (Ah): The time that a battery can deliver (in an hour) the stated current (in Amperes), or the electric charge transferred by a steady current of one Ampere for one hour

 

12 VOLT Batteries joined in Parallel

Batteries joined together in Parallel have the effect of doubling the Amps but the Voltage stays constant in the diagram 1 using identical batteries (of the same voltage and Ampere-hours) shows,

Configuration: 2 x 12V 60Ah connected in parallel = 12V 120Ah output,

 

Batteries used in series and Parallel example 1

Batteries joined together in Series and Parallel: the diagram 2 shows how we start to create a bank of batteries as we would use in principle on an EV (electric vehicle), by joining two battery banks (already linked in series) and connecting them in parallel we increase the battery banks voltage and Ampere-hours,

Configuration: 4 x 12V 60Ah connected in series then connected in parallel = 24V 120Ah output,

 

12 VOLT Batteries used in series and Parallel example 2

Batteries joined together in Parallel and Series: the diagram 3 shows another way to create a bank of batteries, by joining two battery banks (already linked in parallel) and connecting them in series we increase the battery banks voltage and Ampere-hours,

Configuration: 4 x 12V 60Ah connected in parallel and then in series = 24V 120Ah output,
