Best Answer

The early theories of electricity relied on modelling as a fluid. One the earliest ways found to generate an electric charge is to rub amber with silk. and amber has a fatty "juice" In it, which may have influenced terminology. As well, many if not most storage cells (batteries, especially the first ones made) are based on dissimilar metal plates/rods immersed in a fluid solution, or "juice."

It's still common to hear someone say that electricity "flows" from one place to another.
