What are the advantages of connecting electrical devices in parallel with the battery instead of connecting them in series?

 

Answer

The advantages of parallel circuits are 

  • In parallel circuits, if one electrical appliance stops working due to some defect, then all other appliances keep working normally.
  • In parallel circuits, each electrical appliance has its own switch due to which it can be turned on and off independently, without affecting other appliances.
  • In parallel circuits, each electrical appliance gets the same voltage as that of the power supply line.
  • In parallel circuits, total resistance decreases.Hence, greater current can be drawn from the battery
