SI Unit Prefixes: How Many Watts in Kilowatt?

watts in kilowatts mUnit prefixes help dealing with very low and very large values of units - writing is easier and even the math is easier, at least up to the point.

When converting Watts in kilowatts and kilowatts in Watts, it is important to know that the prefix "kilo" means "one thousand of something". Similarly, there are other unit prefixes like mega, giga, tera, peta, exa, etc.

How Long to Charge a Car Battery at 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 15 Amps?

car battery mCharging a car battery from time to time using dedicated car battery chargers may be required when the car is not being used over a longer period of time. Also, if the battery is discharged below a certain level and it can't crank the engine because some load was unintentionally left turned On, charging it with an advanced battery charger may prolong the battery's lifetime.

However, batteries of different sizes/capacities require different charging currents for "optimal" charging - too strong currents can even damage the battery, while too weak currents are unable to recharge the battery in an acceptable period of time.

Best 12V, 24V, 36V, and 48V Lithium Golf Cart Batteries

golf carts mDeep cycle lithium batteries offer many benefits to golf cart owners, including weight savings, a higher number of charging/discharging cycles, simplified maintenance, etc. in the end, lithium golf cart batteries even save money in the long run.

However, there are situations where lead-acid batteries are still the best way to provide zero CO2 emission energy not only to golf carts but also to other electric vehicles in general.
