5 batteries 3 + 2 or 5?

I am installing an ESS with a Quattro 48/8000/110. I have 5 Pylontech 3000C (3.5kW) batteries to connect via a Lynx 1000 distributor. Should I connect as one big 5 battery bank or as 2 (a 3 battery bank and a 2 battery bank)? And why!

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Cheers ... Manor Farmer

Connect as five and take a pair of cables from each end of the stack, 2 positive and 2 negative cables from the battery stack to the Lynx.

This is a good compromise to keep module current balanced and to provide the current carrying capacity for the Quattro.
