    :Cool: If you had 2 x 6 volt 200ah batteries wired as a 12 volt? They would give you a 12 volt 200ah battery. :Wink:

    unlike Gordon Brown you can't get power of nothing. :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
    mind you enough batteries would light him up a treat, I'll donate a battery to help power his electric chair.:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Work you power out by volts x amps i.e. 12v x 110 amp = 1320 va or 1320 watts 6v x 110amps = 660 va or 660watts therefore the first example will give you more power.:RollEyes:
