I intend to replace 6ea 6 volt batteries, which are series connected,outputting 36 volts, with 6ea 12 volt batteries.There are a couple of ways to connect the 12 volt batteries to obtain 36 volts output.The first way is to parallel the 12 volt batteries into 3 pairs, then series the 3 pairs into 36 volts out.The second way is to series 3 of the 12 volts battereis into two groups of 3 each, then parallel the outputs of 36 volts.

I plan to use the original charger designed for 6ea 6volt batteries(36 volts).

What are the pros and cons of each method as pertains to charging and power output.

Will I encounter problems with imbalanced charging with either method?

The original 6 volt batteries are 105 amp hours each,and the 12 volts are 100 amp hours each.

thanks
