Need Advice on 6V/12V battery amp hours
As we progress into new areas of the "project" there is more to learn. The vessel is a 48' ketch and it came with 8xT105 6V Trojan batteries/12V system for the house bank. I understand flooded/gel/AGM and the differences but what I'm looking for is the conversion from 6V amp hours to 12V amp hours???
If a 6V battery is rated at 220 amp hours and you place two of these in series creating a 12V system - would the total amp hours be 440 or? Seems 6V batteries have a much higher amp hour rating.. I suspect the total amp hours are going to be 220?
Thank you in advance for your replies!
