What will happen when series connected batteries are grounded? any change in voltage and current?

Report as

It depends how you hook them up, you can take 5 12volt batteries and hook them up to make one long lasting 12 volt, or you can make it a 60 volt. If you hook pos to neg to pos to neg and so on, you will increase the voltage. And at the end, the neg would be grounded and the pos would be hot. Is that what you meant?

When you ground the batteries you're going to blow them out. Don't attempt to ground them

Grounding one end of a group of batteries connected in series will only put that end at ground potential. It should not change the voltage or amperage of the circuit unless other places of the circuit are grounded too.

I agree with huntinhard24 if I'm understanding your question correctly
