Default Another micro(or batteries in general) battery question

Can single cell batteries be wired together to make multiple cell batteries? Not sure why I'd want to do this given the abundance of battery choices out there, but ya never know...

Wiring in series would give higher voltage. If they were wired in parrallel, would I end up with a longer endurance battery at the same voltage? Or would doing either of these just be a recipe for a motor BBQ?

Thanks in advance for entertaining a random question!

All of my landings are three point landings if you count the spinner, too

That's what a 2S or 3S battery is...2 or 3 single cells wired in series. And a while ago it used to be common for cells to be wired in parallel to give higher capacity (mAh).

So if you ever think of a good enough reason to bother doing it yourself then of course it's possible .
