See, this is why I hated physics so much and am refusing to commit seriously to doing any more math for this.
joules are newtons per meter.
Coulombs are a measure of electric charge.
volts are joules per coulomb.
Amps are coulombs per second.
Volts can also be calculated as Amps times resistance.
Watts are joules per second.
I forget how to calculate watts using electrical units, but there's some way to do it.
I may or may not be missing some stuff. I forget how to find resistance, for example.

From this I calculated:

285.26723 Coulombs
8.76371E-4 Volts
1141.06894 Amps

Hooray unit conversion! I probably did something wrong since i just baaaarely scraped a C+ out of Electromagnetism, but there ya go

Doesn't seem too far-fetched from what I expected. Voltage (and consequentially, resistance) have to be very low, while coloumbs and amps have to be really high.

This assumes a resistance of 1.
