PICTORIAL AND SCHEMATIC VIEWS OF SERIES CONNECTED CELLS.
When connecting cells in series, connect alternate
terminals together (- to +, - to +, etc.).
have two remaining terminals that are used for
connection to the load only. Do not connect the two
remaining terminals together as this is a short across
the battery and would not only quickly discharge the
cells, but could cause some types of cells to explode.
(2) Parallel-Connected Cells.
In this case, assume an electrical
load requires only 1.5 volts, but will require 1/2 ampere of current.
Assume that a single cell will supply only 1/8 ampere.
To meet this
requirement, the cells are connected in
