Most common six volt battery is 230 amp hours. A pair of them in series is a 230 amp hour 12 volt battery. Think of it as a 12 volt battery please..
Now: 12 volt batteries:
Group 24, about 75 amp hours
Group 27, Just under 100
group 29, Just over 100
So far a pair of sixes beats a pair of 12's That will now change
Group 31, about 130
Group 4D around 240 (lifeline AGM)
Group 8d 255, (Lifeline AGM)
Of course there are other six volt batteries as well.
Check out this one
Lifeline Batteries - Marine & RV Deep Cycle Batteries
But usually when folks talk about six volt batts they mean a GC-2 Golf Car 220 to 230 amp hour
