What is a serial and a parallel connection, and what is the difference?
What is a serial connection and a parallel connection?

A serial connection is a set of cells connected by putting one of their negative and one of their positive terminal together. The result is increased voltage across their non-connected terminals, the absolute Positive/Negative ends.
A parallel connection is a set of cells connected by putting all of their negative terminals together and all of their positive terminals as well. The result is increased capacity across their commonly joined terminals.

This is 4 cells in series, or a 4s

This is 4 cells in parallel, or a 4p
