Lipos in Series - Quick Sanity Check Please


I am about to plug both my 6S lipos into my ESC in ‘Series’ to create a 12S for the first time. Just before I do could someone just confirm that the images below look correct for a series connection. I ordered an XT90 series connector but want to be 100% certain before plugging them in to avoid damage to the ESC and motor

Thanks in advance

That‘s how I connected mine, works fine, use the same type of batteries and charge them to the same voltage.

Do you charge each battery separately or can you charge them in series using a balance charger designed for a 6S battery?

Separately, but you could charge them in parallel, with a charging board.

Makes sense, but just wanted to be sure.

I have been using a HOTA D6 charger which will charge two 6S lipos at a time. I bought the DC only version
