1.5v bat amp hour?

  1. Mar 23, 2004 #1
    how many amp/hour can a small 1.5v produce? If u link 6 together to form a 9v, would the amp/hour change or only the voltage?

    Depends on the type of battery, but NiMh batteries get about 1.7 amp-hour.

    Linking 6 in series gives you 9v at 1.7 amp-hour and linking 6 in parallel gives you 10.2 amp-hour at 1.5v (actually, NiMh are more like 1.2v).

    It very directly depends on how small. You absolutely MUST specify this in order to get an answer. Just consider this quote by russ:
