Hi I have been assigned a project dealing with battery life. I've found that in a series connection, the voltage is the sum of the individual cell voltages but the cell capacity is fixed at the value for the individual cell. In a parallel battery connection, the capacity of the individual cells add to make the battery capacity, but the voltage remains as the voltage of the individual cell. Why is this so? This touches the heart of my project and I would be greatful for any assistance. Thanks Irene
