Amps and watts are two different units used to measure electrical power. Watts measure the energy consumed by electrical appliances, while amps measure the amount of current flowing through the electrical circuit.
Jackery Explorer Portable Power Stations have a higher wattage and amperage rating. The higher amp rating ensures you can power multiple devices simultaneously. Similarly, the higher wattage ensures the power station can charge appliances for long hours.
Jackery Explorer 2000 Pro Power Station has a higher battery capacity of 2160Wh. It has multiple ports, ensuring you can power multiple indoor and outdoor appliances. This guide will reveal how to convert watts to amps using different methods.
- Quick AC charging in 2 hours
- Features a battery capacity of 2160Wh
- Powers up to 8 devices simultaneously
- All-round safety with industry-leading BMS technology
- Powers nearly 96% of your home or outdoor appliances
What Is Watts to Amps
Watts measure electrical power or the energy generated by the amps and volts. The higher the watts are, the more power the electrical appliance consumes.
Also called volt-amps, this unit of electrical measurement is generally used in AC power circuits. For instance, if a microwave has more wattage, it will cook food faster.
Amps, also known as amperes, measure the number of electrons flowing past a certain point per second. A common analogy that describes amps working is a garden hose.
The more gallons of water flow through the hose per minute, the stronger the current. Amps are also used to measure the capacity of electric batteries. For instance, if a battery has higher amps, more electrons flow through the circuit and charge appliances faster.
The amps and watts are related to each other as follows:
Formula: Watts = Amps × Volts
AC Power System: Alternating current is the flow of charge that changes direction periodically. Homes and offices usually have AC power, as the electricity can easily flow long distances. An example of AC is the wall charger of your electronic devices.
DC Power System: DC or direct current is the electric current that flows only in a single direction. Some examples of DC power systems include fuel cells, photovoltaic (solar) cells, and batteries.
In the three-phase supply system, the lower voltage or voltage between a phase and neutral is generally referred to as the line to neutral voltage. In contrast, the higher voltage or voltage between two phases is the line-to-line voltage.

Watts to Amps FAQs
1. How many amps are 4000 watts at 120V?
If you have watts and volts of an electrical circuit, you can easily calculate the amps.
Amps = Watts ÷ Volts = 4000W ÷ 120V = 33.33A
That means 4000 watts, when operating at a voltage of 120 volts, is generally equal to 33.33 amperes.
2. How to convert watts to volts?
Volt is the measurement of force or pressure required to ensure the electric current can easily flow through the wire.
Smaller home appliances like light bulbs, computers, etc., operate at 120V, whereas larger appliances like refrigerators, washing machines, etc., operate at 240V.
You'll need to know the amperage value to convert watts to volts or volts to watts.
Formula: Volts = Watts ÷ Amps
Here are a few common watts-to-volts conversions with a fixed current of 1 amp.
How many volts in 1 watt?
How many volts in 2 watt?
How many volts in 10 watt?
How many volts in 20 watt?
How many volts in 50 watt?
How many volts in 100 watt?
How many volts in 200 watt?
How many volts in 500 watt?
How many volts in 1000watt?
3. What are the relations of amps, watts, and volts?
Ohm's Wheel Law is one of the simplest ways to understand the relation of amps, watts, and volts. Let's say you want to install a 2000 watts window air conditioner at your home. Since the AC is a large and power-sensitive home appliance, it generally requires 240 volts. Now that we have the watts and volts, you can calculate the current using the formula:
Amps (I) = Watts (W) ÷ Volts (V) = 2000W ÷ 240V = 8.33A.
Understanding how to convert watts to amps and vice versa may seem complex at first glance. However, it's pretty simple once you clear the basics and understand their relationship.
Basic knowledge of watts, amps, and volts will help you choose the best power station or solar generator to charge your home or outdoor appliances.
Jackery Explorer Portable Power Stations feature large battery capacities ranging from 293Wh to 3024Wh. Depending on how many appliances you want to charge or for how long, you can invest in the right size power station.
