How many volts and amps can an electric eel produce?

Can an electric eel power a light bulb?

Electric eels can release between 10 to 850 volts, with one big jolt able to light up to a 40-watt DC light bulb.

Can an electric eel power a car?

However, Eels emit that 400 V at 1 A = 400 Watts (though the youtube video says that the eel was emitting 800 Watts). An electric car requires over ten thousand Watts of power to operate. So in theory, you probably could do it, but the power would be intermittent at best and you would need a fair amount of eels.

Can you harness the power of electric eels?

It is possible to use an electric eel to produce electricity. But consistency is the problem. For the electricity to be useful, the eel would need to keep releasing it at a constant rate. It produces approximately 1 amp at 500v.
