Typical vehicle batteryIn automotive and plant vehicle engineering, the term 'battery' refers to a combined number of electrical cells, which, together, provide stored electrical energy for a vehicle for starting purposes.

In a standard lead acid battery there are 6 cells wired together in series. Each cell has an EMF of 2.2 volts, and when connected in series with 5 other cells, this gives us a theoretical voltage of 13.2 volts.

However, each cell in this battery of cells has internal resistance, which means that the EMF of a fully charged battery will have a maximum voltage of approximately 12.8 volts
