## How to Convert Kilojoules to Watt-Hours

To convert a measurement in kilojoules to a measurement in watt-hours, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 0.277778 watt-hours/kilojoule.

Since one kilojoule is equal to 0.277778 watt-hours, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The energy in watt-hours is equal to the energy in kilojoules multiplied by 0.277778.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 kilojoules to watt-hours using the formula above.

### How Many Watt-Hours Are in a Kilojoule?

There are **0.277778** watt-hours in a kilojoule, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 kJ = 0.277778 Wh

Kilojoules and watt-hours are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## What is a Kilojoule?

One kilojoule is equal to 1,000 joules, which is the energy equal to the force on an object of one newton at a distance of one meter.

The kilojoule is a multiple of the joule, which is the SI derived unit for energy. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for thousands, or 10^{3}. Kilojoules can be abbreviated as *kJ*; for example, 1 kilojoule can be written as 1 kJ.

## What is a Watt-Hour?

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

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]}
