The maximum cell potential occurs at the instant when the anode and cathode are first connected and the flow of electrons begins. Beyond that point, the concentrations in the half-reactions change. The production of product decreases the cell potential per increasing Q in the Nernst equation: E= E^0 -RT/nF ln Q.
