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"?

Going into my next performance review: 

"You have lot of voltage, you just need to apply yourself to your wattage."

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