If you need to know what wattage power supply you need for your device and the label has Volts and Amps, use this formula to figure it out.

Multiply the Volts times the Amps and this will equal the Watts.

The label on the device should list these numbers.

All the information you need is in your text :>)

Volts, Amp Watts To determine the wattage, use a simple multiplication formula. The ampere (or**amps**) is the amount of electricity used. Voltage measures the force or pressure of the electricity. The number of **watts** is equal to **amps** multiplied by **volts**.

well, I'm guessing on the tag or label it shows something like this

120V ~ 60 hz 10.5 amps or

120V ~ 60 hz 10.5A or

120V ~ 60hz 11A (*some manufactures round up if it falls into the same wire gauge*)

120Volts ~ 60hz 1260w or

120Volts ~ 60HZ 1260 watt

120V stands for normal operating voltage

"~" means ac current

60 herzts stands for how many cycles

So if your unit shows only amps, it's really simple to figure out wattage

take the voltage shown, in my example it's 120, then multiply the amps, in my example it's 10.5. So 120 X 10.5 = 1260 watts

W = V * A

and vice versus, if it only show wattage and you needed to know what gauge wire you needed to run a receptical to operate it

AMPERAGE = VOLTS / WATTAGE

Maybe a dumb question, but what do you need a transformer for a washing machine? Washers typically plug into a standard 120 volt 15 amp outlet. To figure out the wattage, use the simple formula, P=E x I. There will be a tag somewhere on the machine stating current draw, which is "I", "E" is your voltage, and "P" is your wattage which is what you'll figure out after reading the label on the machine.

to find out the amps needed you need to take the wattage that is listed on the information tag on the door of the dishwasher. Take the wattage number and multiply that number by 1000. Take the figure and divide it by the a/c current used to run the dishwasher this total is the minimum amps need for the proper operation of the dishwasher.

Example 35 watts X 1000 = 35000 divided by power supplied say 120 volts 29.1 amps or 30 amps

Hope this helped

It should say on the label, but if not, you can multiply volts times amps to get the wattage.The power supply for these puts out 2 voltages (12V and 5V), so use 12 V to get a more accurate figure.See if your label has volts and amps listed, then multiply these to get wattage. Watt=Volt X Amp.
