with the ability to absorb electric charge
Explanation:
As always, it depends on the context...
If this is an electric component then there is a chance that "the capacity to absorb charge" or electric charge absorbtion capacity is appropriate - I don't think that . If this is something like a lens cleaner then "with the ability to absorb electric charge" would be more appropriate.

The capacity to absorb and store charge is called "capacitance" and it is measured in farads. But capacitance is not appropriate here.

Electric chrage soaking capacity


Explanation:
Elextric charge means "denka". Soaking capacity means "suidashi nouryoku". You may be aware that this is one of all possible ways to translate this phrase in English. "Suidasu" may be rephrased by absorbing. Please refer to answers from others as well.

Resistance


Explanation:
The ability of a material to dissipate an electric charge is called resistance, so I think this might be the term you're looking for. Resistance is measured in Ohms.
