The root combiner does not steal any power when placed in front of a battery, for example when used to merge multiple solar panels into a single power source. Connecting a solar panel via a root combiner to a passthrough counter will verify this.
However, placing a root combiner after a battery will result in an active use of 1 rW.
Using a root combiner to combine two batteries will draw equally from both batteries at the same time. For example a root combiner with a turret behind it will draw 1 rW for the root combiner + 10 rW for the turret, from both batteries.

If you put more than 1 branch after batterys, they will output the maximum power, not the demanded power. So if you try to branch 3 large batterys, they will output 300 power everytime, if demanded or not. So its recommended to branch a maximum of 2 batterys.
