No I don't agree with you. I just talked to a retired IH mechanic that agrees with me. Look at it this way. Take a 6 volt battery. It has 3 large cells. The same size 12 volt battery has 6 cells that are half as big as the ones in the 6 volt battery. Voltage is determined by the number of cells. Amperage is determined by the size of the cell or # of plates. You can't get double the amps out of cells that are half as big. I hate to say this, but 4 of you telling a lie does not make it the truth. If what you are saying were right, you would need cables twice as big to carry all that current . Instead they are smaller. In house wiring you have 10 times the volts but the fuse size is still determined by the wire size. 2 batteries of the same size will produce the same wattage. 6 volts = high amps & 12 volts at lower amps. You can't get something from nothing.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeThe whole of your arguments are based upon 'beliefs' and numbers pulled out of 'thin air' with no supporting hard facts. You keep on with amp & small/large cells............a "belief". For some FACTS, go to Interstate battery, auto batteries, look up 1954 Chevy 6v & 1956 Ford 12v. CCA for the 6v is about 100amps less than the 12v. That is two. Knock yourself out, as they list hundreds.
Try dealing in FACTS, not beliefs, what some mechanic told you or anything except facts. I notice other inconsistencies, too, such as mixing 12v starters and 6v starters. Here in this thread we are dealing with 6v starters exclusively, albeit, some using 12v batteries and some using 6v batteries. Try to keep your comparisons relevant.
