    Can I connect two or more batteries?

    Time: 2017-3-6   By: www.upsen.net

    You can connect a number of batteries in a 'series' or 'parallel' combination when recharging.

    Remember that the battery charger rate is limited to a maximum charging current depending on the model you select and this in-turn, limits the number of batteries you can recharge at any one time.

    Connecting batteries in "parallel" or "series" doesn't damage the batteries.

    Parallel connected 12V operation

    1. Batteries of the same type only (deep cycle, sealed, gelled, maintenance-free) can be charged at the same time in parallel(+ to +, - to -).

    2. When you connect the batteries in parallel, you are keeping the total voltage the same. For example, if you connect two 12 volt batteries in parallel, the voltage of the combination is 12 volts.

    3. When you connect multiple batteries in parallel, connect the + of the first battery to the + of the second battery. Then connect the - of the first battery to the - of the second battery. The + of the first battery and the - of the first battery connect to the charger.


    Series Connected with a 24 Volt Charger

    1. Batteries of the same or different type (deep cycle, sealed, gelled, maintenance-free) can be charged at the same time in series(- to +).

    2. When you connect the batteries in series, each battery is adding to the total voltage. For example, if you connect four 6 volt batteries in series, the total voltage of the combination is 24 volts. If you connect two 12 volt batteries in series, the total voltage of the combination is 24 volts.

    3. When you connect multiple batteries in series, connect the + of the first battery to the - of the second battery. The - of the first battery and the + of the second battery connect to the charger.
