Why do we connect batteries?

Presentation
If you've worked with batteries before, you may have come across the terms series, parallel, and serial and parallel. We are often asked questions such as "what do these terms mean?" "," What is the difference between series and parallel "," and lithium batteries can be connected in series "and so on. If you are unfamiliar with lithium batteries or general lead acid batteries it can be confusing, but hopefully we can help you keep it simple.

Let's start at the beginning - your battery. Series, series, parallel, and parallel are the actions of connecting two batteries together, but why do you want to connect two or more batteries together in the first place? A battery pack is the result of connecting two or more batteries together for a single application (i.e. a sailboat). What is the effect of connecting several batteries together? By connecting two or more batteries in series, in series, in parallel or in parallel, you can increase the voltage or the capacity in ampere-hours, or even both; allowing higher voltage applications or power hungry applications.

Battery connection in series
Series connected batteries refers to the connection of two or more batteries together to increase the overall voltage of the battery system. Batteries connected in series will not increase the capacity, but will only increase the voltage.

For example, if you connect four 12Volt 100Ah batteries, the battery voltage is 48V and the battery capacity is 100Ah.

To configure the batteries to be connected in series, each battery must have the same voltage and rated capacity, otherwise the battery may be damaged. For example, you can connect two 6Volt 200Ah batteries in series, but you cannot connect 6V200Ah battery to 12V200Ah battery.

To connect a battery bank in series, you connect the negative terminal of one battery to the positive terminal of the other battery and so on, until all the batteries are connected, then connect the link / cable to the negative battery post of the first battery in the string Connect to your app, then connect another cable to the positive post of the last battery in your battery string to your app.

When you charge the batteries in series, you must use a charger that can match the voltage of the battery system. We recommend that you charge each battery separately to avoid battery imbalance.

Sealed lead acid batteries have always been the battery of choice for high voltage long chain battery systems. Although lithium batteries can be configured in series, attention should be paid to BMS or PCM.
