  • How large of a battery?You might get the idea that you can connect hundreds, or even thousands, of cells in se-ries and obtain batteries with fantastically high EMFs. Why not put 1,000 zinc-carboncells in series, for example, and get 1.5 kV? Or put 2,500 solar cells in series and get 1.25kV? Maybe it’s possible to put a billion solar cells in series, out in some vastsun-scorched desert wasteland, and use the resulting 500 MV (megavolts) to feed thegreatest high-tension power line the world has ever seen.128 Cells and batteries7-6Connection of cells in series-parallel.
