  • A watt is a measurement of total electrical power. Volts x amps = watts.
  • A measure of power or the rate of energy consumption by an electrical device when it is in operation, calculated by multiplying the voltage at which an appliance operates by the current it draws (Watts = Volts X Amperes).
  • Watts is the measurement of the amount of electrical power drawn by the load.
