Series and Parallel Connections for Batteries

Thanks for your electrical question Tristan.

Battery Connections and Voltage Output

The Difference Between Series and Parallel Connections

Example Table of Battery Connections
Each Battery – 1.5v 2500mAh
2 in Series = 3v at 2500mAh (end to end)
2 in Parallel = 1.5v at 5000mAh (side by side)
