"Current" is just flow-of-"charge",
and there's plenty of that, because
"charge" extends from the 'center'
of every ion, spreading in 'inverse-
square' proportion to distance from
the ion.

Stuff at distances from an ion "feels"
the =net= "charge" of all the ions
that're in motion with respect to it,
which generates "current" in what-
ever the stuff is.
