How to hook up 2 car batteries to get 24v?

To charge at 24 volts? Do I hook up a cable netween the positive terminal of 1st battery and the negative terminal of 2nd battery? Then put the positive clip of battery charger on the unused positive battery terminal? Then put the negative clip of battery charger on the unused negative battery terminal?

Just a FYI,what you are doing is connecting in series which will give you 24v and the capacity of the battery,if you connected +to+ and - to - that would be in parallel for 12v but double the capacity of a single battery.

It's always better to ask a question first, rather then after letting out the magic smoke

FYI: my iC3010 says 36V input -- don't read that as 3S-Pb!
