hi everybody i am looking for a little help as i am new to solar so can any of you give me some advice on this please?
thanks in advance
i have
8 x lithium-ion battery cells all connected in parallel
model ca100
nominal voltage 3.2v
rated capacity 100ah
rated energy 320wh
multi meter shows on main positive and negative of batterys 13.18v with my battery charger disconnected
but when my victron blue smart charger 12v 20a is connected on li-ion mode it shows on the victron connect app that the voltage is 14.11 and current 20 amps this is on bulk charge . i thought that the batterys would be fully charged at 14.2 volts or am i missing something ? i really cant afford to damage the batterys so hence the reason i need some advice thanks

I'm no expert, but how come with 8 batteries in parallel you get that voltage? Is it a series of 4 with 2 in parallel?
