# What is 1 kW? kW to W Calculator

In the electric pricing system, you will often find kilowatts used to measure the amount of energy used.

Kw is a unit of measurement and measures the appliance or product having a 1000watt consumption used in an hour, which measures to 1kw. And watt is a unit of electric power.

For example, a 50-watt charger will take 20 hours to consume 1kw, a 100-watt appliance will take 10 hours to consume 1kw and the measurement goes on like this.

So,

• 1kW = 1000 watts
• 1kW = 1000J/1s (1-kilo watts is equal to the energy consumption of 1000 joules for 1 second)
• 1kW = 1000000 milliwatts (1-kilowatts is equal to 1000000 milliwatts)
• 1kWh = 1 unit
• 1000kW = 1MW (1000 kilowatts is equal to 1 Mega watts)
• 1000000kw = 1GW (GW= Gigawatts)
• 1kW = 0.746HP (HP=Horse power)
• 1kW = 1.76KVA (1kVA is 1000 Volt apms)

Faqs:

### Is 1kw equal to 1000 watts?

Yes 1 kilo represents 1000 and 1000 watts is equal to 1kW

### 1kW microwave is how many watts?

It is equal to 1000 watts, which is 1kW = 1000 watts

### What is higher watts or kW?

1kw is equal to 1000 watts so a watt is a smaller unit and kW is a bigger unit to measure electricity.
