    so you will always know
    6 volt batterys have 3 cells
    12 volt batterys have 6 cells
    your car battery has 6 cells that
    makes it a 12 volt

    Just be careful not to charge it to fast. I had a brain fart a few weeks back and wasn't paying attention when I was charging a battery and didn't notice that I had the charger set on 128 amps. About 1/2 hour into charging I noticed steam coming out of the battery. That baby was HOT, much longer and I think I would have had a fire :hammerhead:
