Little correction: it's 13.7 W/h not KW/h.

@claudius in this case it's intended, since it's an average over an hour.

@sheogorath 13.7W can absolutely be the average over any given timeframe or instant.

So I guess you measured somewhere around 650Wh over two days, right? that is on average 13.7W (650 Wh divided by 48h). But even if you would have measured for 15 minutes, the calculation would be the same: 3.4Wh divided by 0.25h would also equal 13,7W.

@sheogorath let's look at it the other way round: you have a 1.000W toaster oven.

If it runs for a second, you just consumed 1.000Ws or about 0,3Wh. Leave it running for one hour, you consumed 1.000Wh. Leave it running for a full day, you consumed 24.000Wh

All while needing 1000W of power in any given moment or timeframe.

Claudius@claudius@imd.social@sheogorath it is probably 13.7W (not W/h). Watt is "Energy per Time" already.
