Guide to Connecting Multiple V15 Battery Packs

Guide to Connecting Multiple V15 Battery Packs

V15 Contents

This guide describes how to connect the inputs and outputs from multiple V15 battery packs in parallel. Multiple V15 battery packs can be connected in series or parallel using the cables provided. However, connecting the battery packs in parallel is a more efficient circuit since it removes a charging circuit (one battery charging from the other) from the system which introduces an extra source of electrical inefficiency. In addition to setting up your equipment, please make reference to our comprehensive time lapse guide, How to Time Lapse here.
