Watts - these are the power - it's a measure of how much work the electricity can do.


Electrons - electricity is made up of tiny particles - these are electrons.


Amps - these are the amount of electricity in a circuit. The higher the amps, the more electrons are flowing.


Volts - volts are the pressure of the electricity in a circuit. The higher the volts, the stronger the push.
