Might as well add 1 volt @ 1 amp equals 1 watt.

See previous answers and Ohm's Law.

Need to know voltage to complete calculations.

P=EI
I=P/E

1000 watts divide by 120 volts = 8.33 amps

Or

1000 watts / 230 volts = 4.35 amps

You should be able to take it from here.

First off, I am are aware that this thread is whatever old.

Second off, you sound like a total dink (not to be confused with dlink, the router). You didn't even contribute to this thread when it WAS "new". You only replied after the "old" repliers, making your posts even older than theirs. Bam.

Who says old discussions are bad discussions? Anyway.

Amp * Volts = Watts
1 * 220 = 220
1* 12 = 12
200 * 12 =2400
