# 12v Batteries In Parallel Diagram

### Batteries may be wired in parallel or in series.

12v batteries in parallel diagram. The images used here will focus on this setup but if you are using 12 volt batteries simply swap the numbers. Following this example where there are two 12v 200ah batteries connected in parallel we will therefore have a voltage of 12v volts and a total capacity of 400ah ampere hour. Charging 12 volt batteries wired in parallel requires a 12 volt battery charger.

A battery has two terminals one that gains electrons and one which gives electrons. Well in series circuit the terminal battery voltage sum up then 2 x 12v cat 24v but the ampere rating will be 200 ah only. Usually heavy trucks batteries are connected in series to have 24v and parallel them with same set up of batteries to have higher ampere capacity.

Two 6 volt 4 5ah sla batteries wired in series would be a total output of 12 volt 4 5ah. The above diagram 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.

Within the battery an electrochemical reaction occurs to produce electrons. The parallel connection of two identical batteries allows to get twice the capacity of the individual batteries keeping the same rated voltage. Two 12 volt batteries wired in parallel continue to produce 12 volts but the capacity doubles.

4 x 12v 60ah connected in parallel and then in series 24v 120ah output. The following wiring diagram shows that the two 12v 10a 120w solar panels connected in parallel will charge the two 12v 100ah parallel connected batteries as well as power up the ac load through batteries and inverter during the day in normal sunshine. The connections will be the same.
