Take the # 1 battery and connect the positive cable to the vehicle. Then connect the negative cable on # 1 battery to the positive post on battery # 2. Finally connect the negative post on battery # 2 to ground on the vehicle. You will have 12 volts but only the amperage of #1 battery.

It depends on the load and desired voltage. The voltage adds as you put batteries in series. Positive to negative, etc.

Wire minus - to positive +. Know that this will increase the voltage but the amps will stay the same. Wire two 12 volt batteries together in series and you have 24 volts. Click the link.

Yes, if you wire them as two pairs in series to each other. Two batteries in series will give you 24 volts, and another two in series will give you also 24 volts. put the two 24v groups in parallel and you have 24 volts.

They make a 7.5 volt battery when put together

Putting batteries in series will up the voltage of the entire circuit. Certain things need higher voltage, so you put your batteries in series. Putting batteries in parallel will not up the voltage, but will let the current last longer. Watches would be more of an example for that. You want watch batteries to last long.

It depends on the use it is being put to. It is sufficient for a 24 volt circuit. Too much for a 12 volt circuit and too little for a 240 volt circuit.

No, since in series they are 24 volts so you need to charge each one independently with the 12 volt charger. This may be done disconnected or leave them connected and put the charger on the + - of the same battery.

A series circuit is put together such that it only has one path for the charges to move along. There is no alternative route for a series circuit.

When checking continuity in a series circuit, you put your leads in series with the circuit or device being checked. You also make sure the circuit is deenergized and that it is open.

in a series circuit or it will not work. Put it after the bulb

You put the leads of the volt meter across the circuit if it is a simple volt meter. You need to know the difference in the voltage between two points.

Two nine volt batteries connected in series put out a nominal 18 volts, which is more than enough potential. However, the current draw of the starter is a lot more than two tiny 9V batteries are capable of. There's a reason car batteries are so large, despite only putting out slightly more voltage than a 9V battery does.

+ to - to + to - to + to - to + to - to end to end the same way as you would put them in a tubular torch.

just put 5 of the 1.5 volt batteries in series that will give you 7.5 volts. it should work in a 7.2 volt aPPLICATION. OR use ohms law and work it out, google it man

The batteries supply the needed energy, and complete the circuit, allowing the torch to work. (You can see the effect of having a complete circuit, for it to work when you put the batteries in the wrong way. This disconnects the circuit.)

If you put two 12 V batteries in series you get 24 V. Connect the positive of battery 1 to the negative of battery 2. Then you have 24 V between negative of battery 1 and positive of battery 2.

the ammeter is put in series in the circuit ... and the voltmeter in parallel with what's you're measuring

if you put too many batteries in the socket, the bulb will blow out because there would be too much energy passing through the circuit. If you put too little amount of batteries in, the brightness will be low, and will probably run out, because of the little amount of energy passing through the circuit the more batteries, the brighter the bulb

yes and its much better to put two 6s in series than 12s in parallel seems like the old 12v vw beatles had 2 sixes in series under the back seat

Two batteries, put them in series and either measure the voltage with a voltmeter, or with a fan connected watch the speed increase. A parallel connection will increase the current available but will not have an obvious change in output, as the current available is just that, ready for use. You can do something else with parallel and that is to have a volt meter showing that there is a current flow between the two batteries and that is why batteries connected in parallel will discharge.

Two types of circuit are serial and parallel. Putting the batteries in series will add their voltages, while putting them up in parallel will increase their power (amp/hours available) If lights are in series, and one burns out, then they all go out. If they are put up in parallel when one burns out the rest will stay on; like Christmas lights.

The switch will not increase the current. The only thing that will increase the current is adding a larger load.Another AnswerTo maximize current flow in a circuit with 2 Flashlightbatteries, 2 Flashlight bulbs, and a switch, set aside the bulbs, put the batteries in series, connect the switch between the end poles of the battery set, and close the switch. The batteries will get hot and probably leak electrolyte, and be drained in seconds.If you want to maximize current through the circuit withthe bulbs in it, connect the bulbs in parallel to each other, and in series with the switch.
