Two batteries in series, can I connect a load to only one?
I have two 12 volt batteries connected in series in order to supply a motor that requires 24 volts. But I also have a strip of 12 volt LEDS that I would like to power. What I want to know is if it is possible to connect the strip to the terminals of one battery even though the two batteries are connected in series? I realize the easier way to do this is to step down the voltage, but please answer my question.
All comments are genuinely appreciated
