battery pak + charger question

Post by csurban » Sat May 20, 2006 6:28 pm

So... I just bought 12 1.2 volt, 2500 mAh NiMH, AA sized batteries. Now I know you can hook them together in one way so that they increase voltage and another to increase Amps. So how would i connect all the batteries together to create one big 5 Amp, 7.2 volty battery? P.S. a diagram would be really helpfull :) And then, after i get the battery all hooked up, how do I charge it up while inside the case?
nope... can't think of anything I could possibly want to put in my Signature Block...

well, to get 7.2 Volt, you hook 6 of those in series. to get 5000 mah, you put to pack like those in parallel.
