Hehe, I didn't see "carico", I only saw "scarico" and I do know the differences but still came to the same conclusion, now I feel disappointed I didn't stick to the words, just got caught up in the context and changed what I thought I saw, or thought it should be. To my scientifically deprived mind I thought electricity could only be discharged into the atmosphere as static eletricity, well maybe in the context of using a "material" anyway.Hi Alex,
I think Gibbo may himself have caused some confusion here. His thread title says "scarica", but the text of his starter post says "carica" (which Tim & you correctly identify as "static electricity" or "[electrostatic] charge".
But when Gibbo later post's the whole sentence, he reverts to "scarica", which I think is discharge.
