Absolutely right, and it works both ways. For instance, I have to be able to reconfigure my house bank to produce 24 volts if the engine
bank dies. So if I go with 6 volt cells, I need at least 4.
The need to be able to build 24 volts from the house bank ruled out some options on the REALLY big 2 volt cells that I was considering early on.
