As this is in the Tubes section my reply will be: High Tension. Tension is also known as voltage when we speak of electricity.

In other contexts it could be Home Theater or something completely different

high voltage (or HV) would be a clearer term to use?

You could say so... And then you would also use the term Amperage in stead of Current?

I kinda like the term tension. That describes what we mean and not in which unit we measure what we mean.

But of course voltage is a very widely used term. But that doesn't make it any clearer, if you think about it

In Morgan Jones book Valve Amplifiers, HT (High Tension) is the term he used for the high voltage. LT (Low Tension) is for the heaters.

I guess what i'm saying is that the word tension has other meanings not related to electrical/electronics.

at least if you use "voltage", anyone into electrical/electronic DIY (even those who are just starting) would know what it is

heck even if you're not into DIY like my wife, she would understand if I use "voltage"

but that's just me

Well, the high tension lines hanging from the pylons meet both mechanical and electrical terms of phrase.

"Tension" is a Britishism. You would never hear that term used in the US. But these are people who drink warm beer while (not "whilst"!) watching soccer.
