12 volts 10 amps (120 watts) paralleled with 12 volts 10 amps (120 watts) is 12 volts 20 amps (240 watts).Thank you for replying. In Wills book (the off grid king) set up calls for a 80 amp controller or 2 40 amp controllers but it stops there. So the only thing I could figure was to parallel them. But with my limited knowledge I am having trouble grasping the gains from charging this way. 12 volts 10 amps paralleled with 12 volts 10 amps is only 12 volts 10 amps. sorry but electrical engineering escapes me
Yes I forgot that would double in parallel and there is my gain in charging. Thank you for that. Greatly appreciated!12 volts 10 amps (120 watts) paralleled with 12 volts 10 amps (120 watts) is 12 volts 20 amps (240 watts).
Series adds the volts, parallel adds the amps.
I have a 24 volt system. Two batteries. Can I run two separate 12 volt charger maintainers? When I'm on the gridOne can have as many independent charging sources running concurrently as they like provided they are programmed properly for the voltage of one's battery bank. Examples (some or all at once, even multiples of a single type, different brands, etc.): Solar PV via MPPT Solar PV via PWM AC-DC...diysolarforum.com

I've been trying to make sure I understood this correctly, and just had a discussion in another thread with a couple other forum members. Look at this post and the two posts above it. I'm guessing my stupid is showing again?No, it doesn't work that way unfortunately.
