Hmm, you seem awfully interested in this – you’re not a mad scientist planning on taking over the world with a giant lightning machine, are you?

damn your on to me.

no i questions arose to me when i was thinking about electric eels in the water and then it just kind of grew from there

Your question is pretty vague. It would depend on how much electricity there and the type of water it was going through. I don’t have any answer I just wanted to point out your silly vague question.

Well i guess it would depend on how much voltage you have, like maybe try a car battery, or a battery charger, try that and try each voltage and see how far each one goes with a small lightbulb and then what you used multiply it by other voltages ond there you go. you can see just how far electricity goes through water but it depends on the voltages
