Volts measure how strongly an electrical current can be carried through the system. Amps (Amperes) is a measurement of how much power your appliances and personal electronics need.

Using water as analogy might make this easier to understand. Voltage is similar to the pressure that is pushing the water through a pipe. Amps is similar to the gallons per minute of water being delivered. Amperage is NOT power. Power is calculated by multiplying the voltage and current P = VI where P is the power in watts, V is voltage (sometimes called EMF) in volts and I is the current in amps or amperes.
