How to Convert Kilowatt-Hours to Amp-Hours
Kilowatt-hours, abbreviated kWh or kW·h, are a measure of electrical energy. The energy equal to one kWh is equal to one kilowatt, or one thousand watts of power, consumed for one hour of time.
Amp-hours, abbreviated Ah or A·h, are a measure of electrical charge, and are often used to measure the charge capacity of batteries. One Ah is the amount of electrical charge transferred by one amp of current in one hour of time.
You can convert kilowatt-hours to amp-hours using a formula.
kWh to Ah Conversion Formula
Converting from electrical energy to electrical charge can be done using the formula below. The voltage at which the charge is held must also be known.
Ah = kWh × 1,000 / V
The electrical charge in amp-hours is equal to the energy in kilowatt-hours times 1,000, then divided by the voltage.
For example, let’s convert 5 kWh at 120 V to Ah.
Ah = 5 kWh × 1,000 / 120 V
Ah = 5,000 Wh / 120 V
Ah = 41.667 Ah
So, in this example, 5 kWh is equal to 41.667 Ah.
