a 12 V battery is made of 36 cells each rates at 2V and 1.5 A for a given duty cycle. what is the line current and power that may be drawn from the battery?
Tnx :)

are the cells in series or in parallel?

Probably 6 cells in series to give 12 v, then 6 sets of those (36 cells total) in parallel.

I suspect that Steve has the diagram right.
Then each of the six branches can carry 1.5 amps
so 9 amps total
9*12 = 108 Watts 
Interesting, went nameless :)
