There are lots of SI units, one for each physical dimension that can be
measured. Some of the ones that might apply here are:

- Volts
- Coulombs
- Watts
- Amperes
- Seconds
- Joules

Some non-SI units that may be acceptable in this context due to common usage:

- Watt-hours (should strictly be joules for this measurement)
