How to Convert Watt-Hours to Kilojoules

To convert a measurement in watt-hours to a measurement in kilojoules, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 3.6 kilojoules/watt-hour.

Since one watt-hour is equal to 3.6 kilojoules, you can use this simple formula to convert:

kilojoules = watt-hours × 3.6

The energy in kilojoules is equal to the energy in watt-hours multiplied by 3.6.

For example, here's how to convert 5 watt-hours to kilojoules using the formula above.
kilojoules = (5 Wh × 3.6) = 18 kJ

How Many Kilojoules Are in a Watt-Hour?

There are 3.6 kilojoules in a watt-hour, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 Wh = 3.6 kJ

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

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]

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 103. Kilojoules can be abbreviated as kJ; for example, 1 kilojoule can be written as 1 kJ.
