Static electricity is the BUILT UP STORE of electron charges [e-] between a pair of objects, while current electricity is the FLOW of electrons between these objects. Static electricity is a transfer of charge from one static body to another, resulting in an imbalance in positive and negative charges, while electric current is the flow of electrons, from one static body to another. Static electricity is an imbalance of electric charges within or on the surface of a material. The charge remains until it is able to move away by means of an electric current or electrical discharge. Static electricity is named in contrast with current electricity, which flows through wires or other conductors and transmits energy.
