I'm not trying to beat a dead-horse here, but I'm trying to see this in
layman's terms.  Feel free to correct me...  If you say that current is
the quantity of electrons(for example, the size of a river-i.e. the
bigger the more water) and voltage is the "pressure"(the speed), then
wouldn't increasing either basically charge the capacitor faster?
Wouldn't doubling the current(increasing the size of the river) or
increasing the voltage(increasing the flow of the water) have the same

	"You can make all the current in the world available to a
	and it is NOT going to charge any faster! To make a capacitor
	faster you have to increase the applied voltage! Try and
remember the
	old analogies to clearify; current is the quantity of electrons
	voltage is the pressure the electrons are under. How any
	you have available wont effect how fast a capacitor charges, but
	amount of pressure (voltage) they are under will! If you keep
	applied voltage the same but double the available current, you
	have to double the capacitance to use that available current."
