**48V**(connects to a battery)

**A few common questions:**

**How to convert Watts to Amps?**

**Take the watts and divide them by the volts to get the Amps**

**Watts ÷ Volts = Amps**

Take the wattage of your device and divide it by the voltage it requires (typically 120v at home) and the result of that division will be the number of amps the device is drawing.

So a 1500 watts heater plugged into your wall outlet at home (120v Standard US outlet) will draw 1500 watts ** ÷** 120 volts = 12.5 amps

**How to convert Amps to Watts?**

**Take the amps and multiply them by the volts to get the watts **

**Amps × Volts** **=** **Watts**

Going back to the example of our heater.

Suppose we know the heater is pulling 12.5 amps and that it plugs into our home 120v standard wall outlet

Finding out the wattage of the heater would be a simple multiplication between the 12.5 amps and 120 volts, resulting in 12.5 **×** 120 = 1500 watts

**How to find the Voltage of a device or appliance when traveling?**

The voltage of a device is always indicated on its back label. Most appliances and heat-producing devices can only support a specific voltage, such as the American Standard Voltage, in which case they will be clearly labeled with 120V

Other smaller devices, such as laptops and electronic devices in general, are usually more flexible. They can support a range of voltages, such as 100-240V.

These devices are generally safe to be used in most countries.

Remember that travel adapters DO NOT change the voltage. They convert the plug. You will need a transformer for a device with a different voltage requirement. Plugging a device with the wrong voltage will damage your device and could result in a fire hazard.

**What is the Power Factor, and should I worry about it?**

You’ll see many people trying to include the Power Factor in their calculations and further confusing you.

We only worry about the power factor in industrial and commercial settings, so you can ignore it for your home and office calculations.

**What is mA (milliAmps)?**

milliAmps is just amps multiplied by 1000.

milliAmps is just a unit that is easier to use when the amps are too low in the form of fractions.

Instead of saying 0.021 Amps, it is easier to say 21mA

**How to convert A (amps) to mA (milliamps)?**

Multiply amps by 1000 to get milliamps

**Amps × 1000 = mA**

0.021 amps **×** 1000 = 21mA

**How to convert mA (milliamps) to A (amps)?**

Divide milliAmps by 1000

**milliAmps ÷ 1000 = Amps**

21mA ** ÷** 1000 = 0.021 amps
