Battery/Cell Arrangement

From Unofficial Zero Manual
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Cell arrangement (also battery arrangement or battery configuration) refers to how the cells are grouped to provide power with sufficient current and voltage output for the application.

  • Series arrangements raise pack voltage
  • Parallel arrangements increase pack current capacity, as well as balance cells if they are cross-connected.
