A ‘16V Max’ (14,4V) battery pack consists of four individual battery cells. Each cell has two voltage ratings: nominal and maximum. When a 3,6V Lithium-Ion cell is charged, it’s actually charged with 4V. Only when it’s discharged to a level of 50%, it reaches the nominal level of 3,6V.
The nominal rating is calculated as follows: 3,6V x 4 cells = 14,4V. While the ‘Max’ rating is based on the maximum charge level: 4V x 4 cells = 16V.
