Does the capacity of the battery increase when they are connected in series?

No. If you connect in series, positive to negative and then connect load to the remaining positive and negative terminals then the voltage at these terminals is the added voltage of the batteries thus connected, but the capacity (amphours) stays the same.


What happens when you stick two 9 volt batteries together?

If you connect positive to positive and negative to negative you will have a 9V battery with twice the current capacity in milliampere hrs than a single batteries. The load then goes between positive and negative paralleled terminals. If you connect one negative of one battery to one positive of the other battery and put the load between the remaining negative and positive terminals you have created an 18 V battery with the same milliampere hr rating as a single battery. If you connect one negative to positive of other battery and the negative of that battery to the positive of the first battery then both batteries with quickly drain and get hot in the process. Contrary to folklore or urban lefends, they do not explode.


When jumping a dead battery are the positive terminals connected last?

No, always connect the negative last.


Where are jump start terminals Mercedes elegance?

The battery post positive terminal is where you connect the positive cable. Connect the negative cable to anyplace on the engine or chassis. Connect positive first and remove it last.


When a battery has two positive and two negative terminals is it ok to connect one battery to a second battery using the second terminal?

the two terminals both conect to the electrode of the battery,so, you can conect two batteries with the two "terminals" for parallel circuit or series circuit. Rocky_B - Yes you can do this to give yourself some extra amps, but connect the negative to the negative of the other battery and the positive to the positive of the other battery - This is what previous poster meant by parallel. Warning: If this is for an automobile electrical system, you do not want to connect it in series; i.e. Positive to solenoid, negative to positive of other battery, negative of other battery to ground, as it would be supplying over 24volts to a 12volt system and may seriously mess up your electrical system or cause wire insulation to heat up, melt, and cause fires.


How do you jump start a 1988 Honda Shadow?

Connect the bad battery to a good battery with jumper cables. Connect the positive terminals first, then the negative terminals. Now try to start the engine. When finished, disconnect the jumper cables in reverse order.


What happens when you connect the car positive and negative battery terminals together Will this reset car computers?

If you connect the terminals together with them unhooked from the battery and the engine off, yes that is also called a capacitive discharge.If you connect the terminals together with them unhooked from the battery and the engine off, yes that is also called a capacitive discharge.


What happens to the free electrons if a metal wire is connected to the positive and negative terminals of a battery?

The presence of free electrons in a metallic wire cause it to be a conductor. If you connect said wire across the terminals of a battery, and electric current will flow, which means the electrons move from the negative toward the positive terminal.


What can happen if you connect battery terminals positive to negative and negative to positive to a 1999 Honda odssey?

It may destroy the battery or it may just blow the main fuse or it may do other damage. No way of knowing for sure what will happen.


How do you wire stereo speakers?

When removing the battery leads from the terminals you do what first?

Disconnect the negative - terminal first, then the positive + terminal. Unfasten the battery hold down clamp. When reinstalling the terminal connections connect the positive terminal first.


How do you hook back up a car battery?

Connect the Positive + battery cable to the positive + battery post first. Then connect the Negative - cable to the negative - battery post.


What happens if you connect two negative terminals to ground in a circuit?

If you connect two negative terminals to ground in a circuit it will not pass the current. There has to be connection to the positive terminal for power supply to flow.


How do you connect two deep cycle 12-volt batteries in parallel to an RV?

Assuming neither battery is used to start the engine, simply connect the positive (+) terminal of the first battery to the positive terminal of the second battery. Then connect the negative (-) terminal of the first battery to the negative terminal of the second battery. Connect the load circuit to the positive and negative terminals of one of the batteries as usual. You may want to charge the batteries separately before making the connection, since connecting a charged battery to a discharged battery will result in a very large current flowing from the charged battery to the discharged battery, possibly damaging the wiring or either battery.


How do you identify battery terminals without any marking?

Best way would probably be to use a multimeter or voltmeter. Turn the meter on to volts DC and connect the probes to the battery terminals, if the voltage is shown as a negative, then switch the meter's probes around at the battery end so it shows the voltage as a positive reading on the meter. Mark the positive and negative terminals on the battery after this. Some car batteries have the negative terminal as the small post, but on some as the big post.


How do you connect two deep cycle 12 volt batteries in parallel to an RV?

First off you must have the same type batteries. Connect the positive post of the first battery to the positive post of the second battery. Then connect the negative post of the first battery to the negative post of the second battery. Now connect the positive post of the first battery to the positive connection on the vehicle. Then connect the negative post of the first battery to the negative cable of the vehicle. Click the link for a diagram.


How do you charge the battery on a 2001 dodge stratus se?

Connect a battery charger to battery positive to positive negative to negative


Should I use the negative or positive cable to jump start the starter?

You don't, you connect to the battery from the battery of another car. Use the positive cable to connect the two positive electrodes and the negative to connect the two negative electrodes.


Can you charge a 24 volt battery with 2 12 volt chargers?

Yes. Connect the negative clamp from one charger to the positive clamp of the other, then the remaining clamps to the battery terminals.


How do you hook up 2- 6volt batterys to be able to charge them with a 12volt charger?

Connect them together in Series. Connect the negative post of one battery to the positive post of the other battery. Then connect the negative charger cable to one negative battery post and the positive to the positive post of the other battery.


When you charge a battery do you connect positive or negative first?

The man said it Always connect the positive + cable first to the battery. Then connect the negative- cable to the engine somewhere. Never connect the negative cable to the battery itself. Batteries vent hydrogen gas and which can ignite with the slightest spark. For this reason never, ever, connect the negative first and never connect the negative to the battery.


When jumping a car do you connect positive one first?

Yes connect the positive first to the positive battery post, and then connect the negative ground to the engine somewhere and not to the battery.
