12v and 2 batteries

5 posts in this topic

How do you connect 2 batteries together and still have 12v not 24v?

Positive to positive and negative to negative will keep you at 12v.

The batteries must be in the same condition though. I.E. both same age and size. If one is better than the other it will draw from the good one to the worse one thus ruining the better one.

Running your batteries in parallel will double the run time if the two batteries are like for like. I used to have a perm on Mille Lacs, and ran 4 6v golf cart batteries. both sets in series, to get 12v, then ran those sets in parallel to keep 12v. They would last almost all winter running the lights.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
