Calculating Watt Hours For Your Electric Skateboard

How To Convert mAh to Wh

To calculate mAh (Milli-Amp Hours) to Wh (Watt Hours) will give you a more definite idea of how much battery capacity and power your setup will have.

milliampere-hours x volts / 1000 = watt-hours

or

mAh x V / 1000 = Wh

Example for 6S 5000mah converted to Wh

A 6S 5000mah lipo pack with a 3.7v nominal.

To calculate the Wh – we would use the voltage 3.7v x 6s = 22.2v

5000mah x 22.2v / 1000 = Wh

A 6S 5000mah lipo pack is 111 Watt Hours.

Example for 13S 8800mah converted to Wh

A 13S 8800mah lipo pack with a 3.7v nominal.

To calculate the Wh – we would use the voltage 3.7v x 13s = 48.1v

8800mah x 48.1v / 1000 = Wh

A 13S 8800mah lipo pack is 423.28 Watt Hours.
