The skill increases the electrical damage that Gaige deals. It boosts the direct Shock damage and Electrocute status damage of all weapons, grenade mods, and Nova/Spike shields. It also boosts the damage from Shock and "AAAGGGGHHH!". Furthermore, the Shock Damage bonus is multiplicative with Gun Damage bonuses from Anarchy.

However, the skill does not affect electrical damage which does not come directly from Gaige, such as electric barrels or Deathtrap's ranged electrical attack.
