Car battery voltage 12 volts is the standard automotive battery in today's vehicle and each of the battery has 6 cells with a voltage of 2.1. A fully charged car battery has 12.6 volts.
How to check a car battery using a multimeter. Does your car not start, do you have dim headlights or interior lights, does the starter sound weak when start
A typical car battery will have six cells. Because a typical cell voltage has a source voltage of approximately 2.0 volts, this makes a car battery produce a voltage of 12 volts.
When does a car battery need to be replaced? The main function of a car battery is to start your car. Today, most cars have a single maintenance-free 12-volt acid battery (in the photo). A car battery is rechargeable. It uses its charge to power the vehicle systems while it's parked and to turn over the engine when you want to start it.
The first is the "bulk" stage that applies maximum voltage (14.4 to 14.7 volts for a 12V car battery) and maximum amperage to quickly bring the battery up to 80 percent of its capacity. This is followed by the "absorption" stage where the charging amperage is cut back while the output voltage remains constant.
If you fully charge your battery and disconnect it from any current draw, it's still a good idea to check it every few months to make sure the voltage doesn't drop below 12.4 volts. If the battery needs to be recharged, it's best to do it with a battery charger.
