How to Convert Kilowatts to Watts Using an Easy Conversion Formula

Convert kilowatts to watts with this simple formula:

watts = kilowatts × 1,000

Converting a kilowatt power measurement to a watt measurement involves multiplying your power by the conversion ratio to find the result. A kilowatt is equal to 1,000 watts, so to convert simply multiply by 1,000.

For example:
5 kW = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 W

Kilowatts and watts are both units used to measure power. Learn more about power and find more power measurement conversion calculators. A kilowatt is a power measurement and can be abbreviated as kW, for example 1 kW. A watt is a power measurement and can be abbreviated as W, for example 1 W.

A watt is equal to the rate of energy of one joule per second and is a standard unit of power measurement under the International System of Units (SI). You might also find our watts to amps calculator or our watts to kilowatt-hours calculator useful.
