Voltage (also known in New Zealand as "Electro Shock") is a Mountain Dew flavor. It was the first to be chosen by fans in the DEWmocracy promotion. Its tagline is "DEW charged with Raspberry Citrus Flavor and Ginseng with other Natural flavors" while its diet version's tagline was "Raspberry-citrus Diet Dew with Natural and Artificial flavors."

Voltage was designed by Mountain Dew fans during the first phase of DEWmocracy I, and was released over the summer of 2008 to compete with Supernova and Revolution to become a permanent flavor. In August, voting had ended and Voltage was announced the winner, holding 41% of the votes. It was officially rereleased to stores on December 29th of that year.

Diet Voltage was created in 2011 for FanDEWmonium, and was a finalist, meaning it had a limited release to stores alongside Diet Supernova. Diet Supernova was announced the winner, with Voltage holding 45% of the votes.
In 2011, Voltage was released in New Zealand, but was given the name "Electro Shock" and described as "DEW with a charge of wild berry flavor." It is commonly mistaken to be a different flavor than Voltage, but the two are in fact the same flavor. Electro Shock was discontinued in 2014 and replaced with White Out.
In 2013, the flavor got released to Circle K stores, and Circle K is currently the only convenience store chain that sells this flavor in fountain form.
