### How many watts can run on 20 amp 240v?

A

**1500 Watt**heater will cost the same to run whether it is 120 or 240 Volt. 240 Volt heating circuits are more common because, as the chart shows, you can place more heaters on a 20 Amp 240 Volt circuit (maximum of**3840 Watts**) versus a 120 Volt circuit (maximum of 1920 Watts). 6.#### What is the maximum wattage for a 20 amp circuit?

For 20 AMP you have 20A*120V or**2400 watts**and 15 AMP you have 15A*120V or 1800 watts. Good Electricians will only plan for 80% load so you have 1920 and 1440 watts respectively at your disposal per circuit. Next, find out what's on the circuit. To do this, leave the lights on that you want to connect to.#### How many amps is 1500 watts at 120 volts?

Given values: Watts=1500; volts=120; Problem: Amps=? Answer: Amps = Watts/Volts. => 1500/120 =>**12.5 Amps**Answer is:12.5 Related Calculator : Horsepower to Amps Unit Calculator.#### How many watts is 2.4 amps?

Quick calculation to find watts: Volts * Amps = Watts, so 5V * 2.4 amps =**12 watts**.
