One measure of power is watts, and watts is amps x volts. So amperage
is only current. It's not a measure of power until the voltage is

I agree with George. The charging voltage when the engine is running
is I think 13.4, but the fully charged battery I've always figured at
12.6v. That's, 2.1 volts for each cell.
