Not that this is helpful to the purpose of the thread, but it wasn't a contradiction.

He was making the distinction between the terms "cell" and "battery." In official parlance, they mean different things, though occasionally (as is the case with single cell batteries) they are often used synonymously. A battery is a term given to a combination of cells between one and infinity used to store and discharge energy. In the case of single cell batteries, when you are referring to the cell, you never refer to it as a cell, rather as a battery. Therefore, when speaking about batteries, you will never have a single cell because you are either: A) Speaking of a single cell in arrangement with others that together form a battery; or B) Speaking of a single cell that acts on its own and therefore is referred to as a battery. Thus, a single cell is never a battery.
