In order to connect 4-6 volt batteries and end up with 12volts you will need to understand parallel and series connections. to connect two batteries in parallel you would connect the positive side of one battery to the positive side of the other battery; and the negative side of one battery to the negative of the other battery. doing this will not change the voltage. to connect in series you connect the positive of one battery to the negative of the other battery. doing this will increase the voltage;in this example you will end up with 12v. 6+6=12. when you stack batteries in a 2-cell flashlight that is connecting the batteries in series. The answer to the question is: connect two batteries in series; then connect the other two batteries in series. after this is done connect the two pairs of batteries in parallel. If you think of it visually you would have two batteries wide and two batteries tall.

Can you charge 2 12 volt batteries with 1 charger?

Yes, you would hook them up as parallel. Hook both positives together and both negatives together. Then hook the charger to one of the batteries. It will take twice as long to charge though.


24 volt trolling motor How do you hook up your battery charger to both batteries?

If you are using two 12 volt batteries in series to run the 24 volt motor and you only have a 12 volt charger, charge the batteries one at a time. The batteries do not have to be disconnected from their series connection but make doubly sure that your polarities are correct when you connect the charger. If you have a 24 volt charger you can leave the batteries connected in series and charge them both at the same time.


How do you wire two 12 volt marine batteries together to run a 12 volt trolling motor?

you would hook them up paralell. + to +, - to -. then the motor, thus increasing amps. if you hook them up + to - then motor you increase volts to 24, probably fry the motor.


Can a 36 volt battery charger be made 24 volt?

If you have two 12v batteries in series to make up the 24 volts, then add a SIMILAR 12 volt battery in series with the existing two so that the 36v charger will work.


How do you hook up 2 12v batteries to make 24v for a wheelchairAsk us anything?

An important proviso is that the Ampere rating of both batteries should be the same. Otherwise, the plate current of the smaller battery could be exceeded. If you hook the negative terminal of one 12V battery to the positive of the other, then the assembly will have an overall voltage of 24 Volts. Be careful when dismantling the set-up if you have to do for charging.

How do you hook up four 6 volt batteries to get 12 volts?

Connect 2 of the 6 volt batteries in parallel and then connect the other 2 in parallel. Now connect those 2 pair in series to each other. You will now have a total of 12 volts with four 6 volt batteries connected in parallel/series. Click the link.


How do you hook up 12 volts lights using 6 6 volt batteries?

Use a series parallel configuration. Two batteries in series to get the 12 volts. Three parallel banks of two batteries to get an increase of amp hours.


Are you able to set up a 24 volt system in your 12 volt land rover to run a 24volt winch?

Yes, you will need to install a second 12V battery in series with your existing 12V battery to supply 24V to the winch. However, to keep them charged, they have to be charged in parallel. You'll need a schematic to do this correctly and not damage the winch or batteries. I recommend you contact the winch manufacturer for a schematic. It might be best to purchase two new 12V batteries to operate the winch and not tie into your Land Rovers battery. I would purchase "deep cycle" marine batteries such as are used in boats and RVs. These will give you the best performance They are available anywhere batteries are sold.


How do you hook up two twelve volt batteries to get twenty four volts?

you put the negative side to the positive side, and tape them stuck Hook them up "in series", like a flashlight. Connect the positive (+) of one battery to the Negative (-) of the other, then use the unconnected leads of each battery as the posts of the 24 volt battery.

Yes


How do you make electrical circuits with 2 or more batteries?

There are 2 ways you can go You can hook them up in series or in parallel If you hook them up in series That is you connect the positive side of the battery to the negative side of the next battery and so on you en up with the voltage being increased by the voltage of each battery So if you hook up a 12 volt battery to the end of a 6 volt battery you end up with 18 volts. Or you can hook them up in parallel That is you hook the abaterys together on one side going from positive to positive and on the other side negative to negative When you do this you end up with the same voltage but increase the amperage.

How do you hook up a battery charger to charge a 24 volt system?

Most 24 volt systems use 2 or 4 12 volt batteries. Be careful not to let the cables get mixed up. They need to be put back in the same spot. Disconnect the battery, Charge each battery individually, Reconnect the cables exactly like they were before. You are ready for work.
