What Voltage Is A Fully-Charged Battery?

A friend and I were discussing various charging methods (i.e. inverter generator, solar, etc.) this past weekend. The question came up relative to what voltage should a fully-charged flooded battery exhibit with a multi-meter once the battery has been charged and allow to settle a while?

12.6V, 13-14V, or something else?

There are charts available for various battery types that estimate the battery state of charge based on the resting open circuit voltage of the battery. Just search the internet for battery SOC chart. Here is a random example:

Short answer to your question 12.7-12.8 volts for a fully charged fla battery at rest.
