Use a voltmeter to check that you have about 45Volts coming out of both leads on each pack, if you do the wires are just parallel to split the load on them and you can tie red to red and black to black permanently and make an adapter to tie joined reds to the joined reds of the other pack and likewise with the blacks paralleling the two packs. If you only have 22volts then you have a 12 split pack made of 2x 6s packs shrinked together for charging on low end chargers, and you will need to connect 1red and black together to connect the pack in series and bump it up to 12s (you want the total length of wiring as short as possible so cut the interconnecting leads back as far as you can), and then the 1 free red gets connected to the red of the other pack and likewise for the blacks to parallel them for running.
Got a link to the packs?
