How to Convert Kilojoules to Watt-hours

To convert a kilojoule measurement to a watt-hour measurement, multiply the energy by the conversion ratio. One kilojoule is equal to 0.277778 watt-hours, so use this simple formula to convert:

watt-hours = kilojoules × 0.277778

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

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilojoules to watt-hours using the formula above.
5 kJ = (5 × 0.277778) = 1.388889 Wh

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

Kilojoules

One kilojoule is equal to 1,000 joules, which are 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 103. Kilojoules can be abbreviated as kJ, for example 1 kilojoule can be written as 1 kJ.

Watt-hours

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

Watt-hours can be abbreviated as Wh, for example 1 watt-hour can be written as 1 Wh.
