    My solar panels are wired and installed.. I need to know how to hook up my battery bank. I'm using (4) 6 volt batteries, hooking them together to make (2) 12 volt batteries.. Connecting a solar controller for charging, a then connecting them to a power inverter.. See the attach diagram..
    Someone please let me know if this wiring is correct.
    If NOT please show me how to wire them... [​IMG] Thank You...

    Not to worry. Last I checked, our solar system runs on a nuclear plant.:D:D:D

    Most people don't understand that batteries are not created equal therefore to add them in series develops no problem however in parallel there is a problem. if one is not fully charged or weak the the other battery will try to compensate for the weakness making it a situation where one battery work like a horse the other simply loaf weakness they both fail prematurely. there are ways to stabilize the situation one is to add a diode in series loss of .7v x amps the other is a small value resistor. either way it is a power loss if enough current is in demand it becomes a very big power loss So it is your call.

    Italo, please read up on batteries before posting. You have your facts confused.
