  Electric current - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The most familiar artificial form of electric current is the flow of conduction electrons in metal wires, such as the overhead power lines that deliver electrical energy across long distances and the smaller wires within electrical and electronic equipment.
Electric current is therefore sometimes informally referred to as amperage or ampage, by analogy with the term voltage.
It is the current that passes that determines the effect, and this depends on the nature of the contact, the condition of the body part, the current path through the body and the voltage of the source.

Direct current installations usually have different types of sockets, switches, and fixtures, mostly due to the low voltages used, from those suitable for alternating current.
It is usually important with a direct current appliance to not reverse polarity unless the device has a diode bridge to correct for this.
High voltage direct current is used for long-distance point-to-point power transmission and for submarine cables, with voltages from a few kilovolts to approximately one megavolt.

 Electric current
Electric current is the rate of charge flow past a given point in an electric circuit, measured in coulombs/second which is named amperes.
Although it is electrons which are the mobile charge carriers which are responsible for electric current in conductors such as wires, it has long been the convention to take the direction of electric current as if it were the positive charges which are moving.
Besides the advantage of agreeing in direction with most texts, the conventional current direction is the direction from high voltage to low voltage, high energy to low energy, and thus has some appeal in its parallel to the flow of water from high pressure to low (see water analogy).

 current - a Whatis.com definition
Current is a flow of electrical charge carriers, usually electrons or electron-deficient atoms.
The common symbol for current is the uppercase letter I. The standard unit is the ampere, symbolized by A. One ampere of current represents one coulomb of electrical charge (6.24 x 10
Direct current (DC) flows in the same direction at all points in time, although the instantaneous magnitude of the current might vary.

E.g to seek backwards from a relative position one would supply 'current' as $start, and 'prev' as $iter.
therefore, you cannot use current() to get the last value added or key() to get the key of the most recently added element.
