## How to convert amps to watts

The formula for converting amps to watts (at a fixed voltage) is watts = amps × volts. To convert amps to watts you multiply your amps figure by the voltage.

### Example conversions

**15 amps**× 120 volts = 1800 watts**20 amps**× 120 volts = 2400 watts

## How to convert amps to watts manually

The **Watt’s Law formula** is all that’s needed for these unit conversions. The wattage (power produced / P) is calculated by multiplying the amps (current / I) by the voltage (V):

**Power (P) = Current (I) x Voltage (V)**

So…

watts = amps × volts

### Example: 5 amps are being sent at 120 volts. What’s the wattage?

Power = Current x Voltage

Power = 5A x 120V

Power = 600W
