    No great mystery. The maximum voltage, current, power, or whatever. The same applies to the rated conditions of non-electric devices.

    The rated capacity of an ordinary bicycle is one person

    Rated conditions may also refer the conditions under which the specifications were derived. Such as the temperature, applied voltage, current, or such.

    For example, specifying the max rated sat voltage at the rated condition of 200ma.
