Ah to Wh Formula

The formula to convert an energy value from ampere-hours to watt-hours is Wh = Ah x V.

$$\text{Energy in Wh} = \frac{\text{Energy in Ah} \times \text{Voltage}}{1,000}$$

Or

$${Wh} = \frac{{Ah} \times {V}}{1,000}$$

Where Ah is the energy value in amp-hours, V is the voltage of the energy source, and Wh is the equivalent energy value in watt-hours.

How to convert amp-hour to watt-hour?

To convert energy value from amp-hours to watt-hours or Ah to Wh, follow the simple steps below:

  1. Write down the energy value in amp-hours (Ah).
  2. Multiply it by the value of the energy source voltage (V).
  3. The result from the equation is the value of an energy value in watt-hours (Wh).

Example: Find the maximum energy that can be produced by a 12V battery

What is the maximum energy can a 12V battery rated at 100Ah generates in Wh? Assuming it can use 100% of its capacity.

To find the maximum generated energy by the battery in watt-hours or Wh, use the following formula and follows by entering the given values.

$\text{Energy in Wh} = \text{Energy in Ah} \times \text{Voltage}$
$\text{Energy in Wh} = {100\ Ah} \times {12\ V}$

Therefore,

$\text{Energy in Wh} = {1,200\ Wh}$

So, the maximum energy generated by a 12V battery with a capacity rated at 100Ah is 1,200 Wh.
