Electric eels can generate a surprising amount of electrical power when shocking their prey. About how much power can it generate?
Answer 500 Watts
Electric eels can generate around 500 volts of charge and have a current of up to 1 amp flow from them to the prey, this means that for that short period of time (usually around 2 milliseconds) they produce 500 Watts of power.
