Can I Split a Lithium Battery House Bank?

Question:

I am installing a 24V lithium battery bank. Would it be better to keep them all together on one side, or would it be possible to split them into 12V banks on either side of the boat for weight distribution, and connect them to make 24V? - Scott

Answer:

Definitely tempting to separate the bank for weight distribution, but avoid doing this as much as possible. A battery bank should be installed in one location and all batteries should be beside one another. Lots of inherent safety implications in having a battery bank separated into two places, especially the temperature sensor connection and also the parallel connections.
