How do you get a high voltage, low current? This is where I am getting confused. I was under the impression, that the more charge you have on an object the bigger the electric field, being produced, so the bigger voltage. As a charge is carried by either and electron or proton, the more electrons on a charge object the more voltage there is the more current will flow due to a huge amount of electrons need to be discharged. Or is that the electrons that are bound to a material gain the charge thus creating the electric field, and depending on the amount of free electrons available would dictate how much current would flow so to speak, as current is a specific flow of electrons which would be repulsed by the negative charge on the object.
