Simplified view

Attached is a simplified electrical model of the ESJ system, just to provide some clarification.

Note that the two batteries have their grounds tied together, which is okay because the two diodes in the balancing section prevent any substantial power flowing between the batteries (there is a small current flow on all back-biased diodes but it's insignificant in this situation).
