Is a 800w vacuum cleaner more powerful than a 6ampere one?
My mom is trying to choose a vacuum cleaner. She asked me about comparing the two cleaners that I mentioned in my question. Trouble is, I know that watts = amperes (volts), but I still don’t know how to answer her question. Can you help?
800 W is more powerful than 6 amp, regardless of whether you’re using US voltage (115 V) or European (230 V). W (Watts) is a measure of power and A (amps) is a measure of current. Power = amps times volts. So, if you live in the US, 6 amps means 6 A X115 V = 690 W. It’s not a huge difference, so price and features are more important considerations.
