My physics sucks but does gravity affect electical charges inside devices... Does it affect magnetism in coils... I thought it has an affect on anything regardless of how small it is.. right?

In newtonian theory it affects EVERYTHING which has the property of "mass". In GR theory it affects EVERYTHING, since it apperars in the equations of motion (geodesic equations). So, yes, according to us so far understanding of gravity, gravity affects everything, reagrdless its space scale.
