Practically never and then only in mockery, derision.
It's current and voltage.

A former employer had a test rig with digital displays labelled "voltage meter" and "current meter".

I try to correct people when they say amperage or wattage. Also, why shouldn't "voltage" be "potential"?

Never. I'd hope to think you wouldn't find anyone with proper electrical education using the term.
