You can think of electricity as water.

Amps is the size of the pipe the water is flowing through.

Volts is the pressure that the water is under.

Watts is the total amount of water flowing through/out of the pipe. You can also think of Watts as Power.

Amps times Volts = Watts.

So in your car for example..........the battery cables are huge.......same as a Big Pipe.

The voltage is small....only 12V

But the Watts, or Output is large, cause of the big cables.....so you have enough Power to turn over your starter.

Now on say a bug zapper.......the Volts is 5,000 .......the Amps is small .....so the total power is pretty small also, cause the pipe is tiny.
