# Watt-Hour Conversion Calculator

Enter a value in watt-hours below to convert to another unit of energy.

## What Is a Watt-Hour?

A watt-hour is a unit used to measure energy.

Watt-hours are usually abbreviated as Wh, although the formally adopted expression is W·h. The abbreviation W h is also sometimes used. For example, 1 watt-hour can be written as 1 Wh, 1 W·h, or 1 W h.

In formal expressions, the centered dot (·) or space is used to separate units used to indicate multiplication in an expression and to avoid conflicting prefixes being misinterpreted as a unit symbol.[1]

## How Much Is a Watt-Hour?

The watt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one watt of power over a one hour period.

## How to Convert Watt-Hours

To convert watt-hours to another unit of energy, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor. A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.[2]

You can find the conversion factors for watt-hours in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the energy measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

watt-hours × conversion factor = result

You can also use a calculator, such as one of the converters below, for the conversion.
