A typical lightning bolt contains 1 billion volts and contains between 10,000 to 200,000 amperes of current. The average flash would light a 100 watt lightbulb for 3 months.
A typical lightning bolt bridges a potential difference (voltage) of several hundred
Lightning can have 100 million to 1 billion volts, and contains billions of watts.
This question can never be answered, only speculate. Many attempts have been made to measure the voltage, and each time the measurement equipment have been blown to pieces.Lightning
