So If I use two 2 x AA banks parallel with diodes on the positive leads to prevent them from affecting eachother is that still bad? I did read the battery tutorial and all the FAQ's. In the FAQ it says refer to bat tutorial for the answer but it never really said why. Any info or links would be much appreciated. I thought that by using 4 x AA's with a 3v output would double my amphours. Seemed like a good idea and I even found a tutorial that showed me the diodes idea and kinda sorta explained why but not really
So I come here to double check because I trust you guys and I see I am wrong. I can accept that, I'm just curious as to why. What are the benefits and disadvantages?
Thanx for your time.
