Abstract

In some uses of battery operated equipment there is a need to have extended operating time from a single rechargeable battery source. This may require the use of multiple battery packs within the same enclosure. It would be desirable to parallel the batteries but due to the problem in exactly matching the cells and safety this is not done.
