VA.  You don't have any phase information when the two variables are
measured separately.

Subject: [PSES] Current measurement

If you want to calculate the consumed power (W) in a 1-phase AC circuit, you
can use a current clamp-on device to measure the current in one lead/wire
and multiply with the applied voltage.
But with such a current clamp on device, to we measure the apparent power
(VA) or the real power (W)?

Best regards
Amund
