How To Wire 12 Volt Batteries In Series And Parallel




What do you think about this video?

Travis Richards: Great video. Question: I've got a 80lb thrust trolling motor that I'm using to create current in an artificial stream that my lab uses to run experiments on stream fishes. We need the water velocity in the tank to reach a certain level (0.6m/s) and right now we're maxed out at 0.51m/s. Currently we have two 12v batteries hooked up in series. If we're trying to increase the turning power of the trolling motor (rpms I guess?) which would hopefully result in an increase in water velocity, would it be better to hook the batteries up in parallel? I'm confused about what ultimately produces more power: volts or amperage. Thanks! 

rickey parker: thants from KF4KIE ham radio its ben a time that I need to dew this I for got thanks

Diane Clayton: Wow. I learned something! Thanks!

thornwarbler: Thanx

fred bing: what wires are you using

Apple Guy: would you be able to do 2 of one and one of the other? for example with your batteries it would = 24v and 36a and if so do you put the series before or after the parallel?

Dan Antilley: Dude says ... a little more careful with this ..... WOOT ... what i needed.

NoProGoPronto: I think I understand the concept of what you're doing, but why not just buy one higher voltage battery? Just trying to learn. Thanks.

philip edward price: Ok here is a demo I was down had to get it right Or my nuts were toast Got it right Sed to laugh my head off at the teacher I swear I was laughing before he even connected it He was so funny Jupiter

mike x: what protects you from getting an electrical shock when you touch the terminals in series. if you touched both the negative and positive terminal with your fingers would you get shocked and will your hands draw conduct electricity? anything over 12v is dangerous to people. if you are doing high voltage in series how do you protect your self form being shocked when you are touching the terminals and when you connect the battery terminals to your high voltage controller.

elkarlos1: Oh and by the way, I use two big mother 100 a/h 12v deep cycle glass plate batteries when I go camping, I just wanted to run more power thirsty accessories like laptops & a 12v electric heater. Works great.

elkarlos1: Great video, thanks, I needed to know this to double the power capacity for the 12v accessories I use when I go camping in my panelvan.

violeman: Thanks Bro !!! I know this was basic knowledge , but I could remember if I wanted Parallel or Series for my riding lawnmower !! But yes, I wanted to keep the voltage at a 12volt rating , so parallel is the way I want to go !!! Thanks again !! DEv

oOSabianOo: It just depends on the type of "power" you need. Think of volts as like the max discharge at any given moment and amps as how long it takes for the battery to drain when being used. To increase volts you wire in a series to increase amps wire in parallel. So say you need a 24 vlt boat battery but you can buy 2 12 vlts cheaper then buy the 2 12 vlts and wire in series. But say you have an electric scooter and want to double the range then get a matching battery and wire in parallel.

Shane Snyder: Do you have any cabin updates?

Josseeknows69: So if i run 2 batterys how should i wire them? In series or parallel to get the most power?

Josh Aleru: Very simple. Thanks man

SolarBurrito: Soon, I want to get up there soon. It's a walk in only situation now because of the snow. 2 miles up a steep hill.

anavidhunter: Nice going...that will be useful to many who get to see this. We do that at work with our big CAT Batteries...to make 24 volts. Great demo, kule vid. Thumbs up

michaeltaylor92: Simple, just what I wanted, thanks a lot. Need to know for my sound system in my car

ben jammin: Nice video dude. Helped me out to run my solar. Im a DYI kinda guy. Thumbs up!

Shane Snyder: I'm just curious as to see how the interior has come along and see how the loft worked out, thanks!

AnnBearForFreedom: Been hoping for a simple no-nonsense video about this, thanks!

SolarBurrito: Soon, I want to get up there soon. It's a walk in only situation now because of the snow. 2 miles up a steep hill.

campbub: Cabin update ;)
