If you ever find out for sure, I'd like to hear the definitive answer. Hard
for me to imagine how two "identical" cells would differ from sticking the
same components and chemistry in one larger cell. Or, if there was some
miniscule difference it wouldn't self equalize pretty quickly.
But, I too can't remember any application where I've seen two dry cells
Aw heck, I went to Duracell's web site:
Scroll down to "parallel"... They don't exactly scream, "don't try it",
I'm gonna ask them myself...My curious mind wants to know...Let ya'll know if
I hear anything interesting.
