1. Current through a circuit is a continuous flow of electrons. Static charge is a fixed static charge.
2. Conductor carryimng current are nuetral i.e. not charged.
3. There is no electric field associated with current through a circuit.
4. There is no magnetic field associated witha stationary charge where as current in a circuit will always have a magnetic field asoociated with it.
