Can someone elaborate on what the max potential of a cell means?

Max potential of a cell is the maximum potential difference between two half cells in an electrochemical cell.

The maximum potential of a cell is the maximum voltage that can occur between the half reactions, but due to resistance and other factors the maximum cell potential is not typically reached
