Batteries in Tandem

6 posts in this topic

My underwater camera goes through an entire battery in a couple hours. It will run the vexillar for days so I know it's a decent battery. Can you hook up a couple batteries in tandem like we do for 12v systems in the boat. Just get some wire and gator clips and hook the like colors together on two batteries. That way maybe I can get a few hours without switching batteries.

I don't want to wreck the camera so I thought I'd ask for guidance first.

Thanks.

Connect (+) to (+) and (-) to (-) so the batteries are connected in parallel. This will keep the voltage at the same level but the battery capacities will be added together.

You can add the extra battery to get more run time, just make sure you go + to + and - to - to keep the connection at 12 volts.

Sounds good. I have never seen anyone do it with the little batteries so I thought I'd check.

Can you charge them in tandem as well, or is there a reason they should be separated and charged separately. I know it would take longer, but I was thinking about hard wiring a couple together.

Thanks again.

I would recommend charging separately. I think it'll be easier for the charger to know when they are fully charged assuming you have an automatic charger. Batteries will draw a little current even when fully charged and that current will be added together, which could fool the charger into thinking they were not fully charged yet.

That's my thoughts anyway. I could be wrong though.

Or, you could just get one larger battery, like a 12Ah or 17Ah.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
