I have hooked my karebill 12 up in parallel, And yes, It did pull more amps. But It produced the most in its current hookup.\

 :'( Blown Cell  :'(

Today, I was trying a new torch out. And getting good results. (10" flame!!!)
Then I heard a Low grunting pop, Turning to see the top of my cell falling
back down on top of  the remains of my cell. And water falling to the floor.

Hard lessons learned

1- If you are going to restrict flow, Get a PSI gauge.
2- Install a high pressure shutoff or pop off

 ;D Very Repairable  ;D

Just time consuming, And a little bit of redesign.  ;)

Sorry to hear the bad news Spike, I loved that cell :D. If you say it is repairable thank heavens, and you might what to try and get some access to the center electrod so you can try out lots of different wirings on it.

Sure wish you the best of luck on your repairs

Spike,
  Just an idea, but when you glue your end cap back on, maybe install some roll pins or dowels through the cap into your manifold plate.  This would probably reduce some the stress.

Just a thought.
