Parallel VS Series Battery Connections

Connecting Batteries in Series

Connecting batteries in series will double the voltage provided by a single battery. For instance, if two 6V @10Ah batteries are connected in series, the voltage becomes 12V @10Ah; if two 12V @50Ah batteries are connected in series, the voltage becomes 24V @50Ah. The capacity, or amperage, stays the same.

Connecting Batteries in Parallel

Connecting batteries in parallel will double the amperage, or capacity, provided by a single battery. For example, if two 6V @10Ah batteries are connected in parallel, the capacity becomes 6V @20Ah; if two 12V @50Ah batteries are connected in parallel, the capacity becomes 12V @100Ah.

Connecting a Battery in Series VS Parallel

Connecting TireMinder Signal Booster to 6V Batteries

When connecting the TireMinder Signal Booster to 6V batteries, you will want to connect the booster in series so that a 12V connection is made. This is done by connecting the booster's red wire to one 6V battery's positive terminal, then connecting the booster's to a different 6V battery's negative terminal, providing the booster 12V. Please see the diagram below for reference.
