More wattage NOT necessary better.

Amperage is the Current, Volts is the potential, and Watts (in simple terms) is Current x Voltage.

Therefore the wattage formula is: Watts = Current X Voltage

And Resistance (Ohm) = Voltage / Current

The Resistance (R) of a material depends on its length, cross-sectional area, and the resistivity
(the Greek letter rho), a number that depends on the material:

The resistivity and conductivity are inversely related. Good conductors have low resistivity, while
poor conductors (insulators) have resistivities that can be 20 orders of magnitude larger.

When we compare two ionizers, setting both machines at same level of current output at 5 amperage,
ionizer ONE that provides 1 Resistance and ionizer TWO provides 2 resistance from the conductors:
Plug into the formula above, we will find that the Voltage produce by both ionizers are as following:
ONE = 5V , and TWO = 10V.

Then we now plug both ionizers' voltage values in the wattage formula, we will get: ONE = 25Watts,
and TWO = 50Watts.

Ionizer ONE: 1 (R) = 5V / 5 amperage

Ionizer TWO: 2 (R) = 10V / 5 amperage

Then, plug into the wattage formula:

Ionizer ONE: 25 watts = 5 amperage X 5V

Ionizer TWO: 50 watts = 5 amperage X 10V

Finally, Ionizer TWO needs larger Wattage to produce the same quality output as ionizer ONE at the
same level of current/amperage. This is caused by poorer plate conductivity in ionizer TWO. On the
other hand, ionizer ONE with lower wattage needed has more efficient plate conductivity. In today’s
electronics, low wattage not only an indicator of good conductivity, but also save power and prevent
electronics from heating up and aging quickly.
