Always wear eye protection when working
Even a small battery stores a great deal of
energy which can be released during a
The electrolyte contained in batteries is
You will notice on these diagrams that the coming
cables are either connected to the opposite
corners of the bank.
This helps even out the charging / discharging
of all of the cells in the bank.
Remember, wiring batteries in series increases
voltage and wiring in parallel increases amp/hour
