Re: Replacing 12 volt batteries with 6 volt

OK. I got 2 6v batteries. I saw some diagrams that showed 4 batteries connected both in parallel and series. Can I do that with just 2 6v and is it a good idea? Also, one of the 12v i have might still be a little tired but still working. Can I use that as a starting battery even though its worn? By the way, my switch is Blue Seas Dual Circuit Plus that is connected to a Blue Seas Battery LInk ACR. I can set it charge to any rate I want to. I guess that I should change it to a different voltage for the Trojans!
