The electrochemical gradient in a cell is the difference in charge and in substance content inside and outside the cell's plasma membrane. The charge portion of the electrochemical gradient is typically -70 mV, meaning that the inside of the membrane is negatively charged more than the outside by 70 millivolts. This gradient is primarily maintained by the Na+/K+ Pump.
