i have 2 banks of 24 volt, 12 amp-hour batteries, in parallel. i charge them as a single bank. my question is, i am building up a trailer for my scooter for extended range, see pics in my other posts. i am considering buying a 36 Ah battery for the trailer; would it need to be charged separately, or can it be charged in parallel with my 2 banks of 12 Ah batteries? i use a charger made for mobility scooters, 24 volt, 7 amps.
