I would like to install 3 of the new 200Ah Lifepo batteries in a parallel setup. The Documentation asks to have each string fused per battery. Usually i would go for simply interconnecting the batteries with well dimensioned short length cables and have one fuse for the complete battery bank. The simple way would save me space, save transition resistance, less failure points etc.
Is there any special reason to have each battery fused individually or is it "just" the way of the very lowest risk.
Any advise is appreciated :-)
