Advise on connecting two batteried needed


Recommended Posts

If you are sure that there is absolutely no prospect of the + wire connecting the two batteries coming loose or being in any way worn / damaged, then you could do away with the individual fuses. That's the simplest solution - but you have to be sure that the connecting cable is well protected and insulated. The following, modified from Clive MG's illustration (hope you don't mind Clive) is how I've done my own, but my batteries sit next to each other under the driver's seat.

To ensure long life, try to keep them in a high state of charge and don't ever run them right down. anything less than about 12.4v across the terminals after they've been left completely unloaded for a few hours is running them low - recharge at this point if not sooner.
