welding rod codes

ok, searched and didnt find anything here. google only gave some info, but not enough to curb my curiosity. what does the code system in welding rods break down into? im planning on making "trail welding kit" and like to be as informed as possible when making any decision. when i was an electrician i could order any wire by knowing the amp draw. when i worked in water filtration i could order almost any fitting by part number because i knew how to read the code. i know you professional welders and fabricators have this stuff memorized and can dump truck info in your sleep on this subject. please enlighten me as im a to stick welding.

that is exactly what i have been looking for!

edit: so, from what im reading, an E6010M or E6011M rod may be a good choice for battery powered trail welding due to it needing lower DC amps to weld and deep penetration. if anyone has any input positive or negative, please share it.
