Question about Cars & Trucks
It has to have 12.6 volts or you need to charge it
It has to be able to take & hold a charge
A battery can last 18 months or 8 years
What's the question or problem you can't figure out?
A volt meter test alone is not a conclusive test of a battery
There are several ways to test them
I assume you have a vehicle problem & have ruled out the battery!

Check the fuel. Don't rely on your gauge, and if in doubt add some fuel just to make sure there is enough to start the car. Try to start the car and if it still doesn't start you know that fuel isn't the problem.
Make sure your car is in Park and the emergency brake is set.
Look closely at your dash board when you attempt to start the car. If your lighted panels don't come on or are very dim then it is likely that you are dealing with a dead battery. Either use a battery tester or simply hook the battery up to a charger or use jumper cables to hook up to another car battery in order to charge the battery enough to start the car. After you charge the battery if your car still won't start you may be dealing with a bad starter.
Call a mechanic to find out if there are any other possibilities before you purchase and replace the starter.
