Amperage. When you put a higher load on a device the amp draw increases.
Kinda like a breaker in your home. Its rated for a certain 'amperage', if you exceed that rating the heat from the amp draw will increase causing your breaker to trip. Amperage is measured by heat load, to keep it simple. The higher the amps the more heat put out by the device.
