Re: Uneven Water Loss in Batteries

I agree with Maine. Parallel works well in installations on boats as in industry. I have installed 12 volt batteries in parallel as well as 6 volt batteries in series/parallel without issues for years, in banks as large as 1000 AH. As long as the bank is drawn from evenly there have not been any problems. As Maine stated it is the only affordable way to create a large bank.
