#### Question

# Is 48Wh the same as 4800mah?

I'm buying a new dell battery and the capacity is 48Wh. On amazon it say 4800mah for the same model. Rating is 11.1V type x284g Li-ion Battery

#### Answer

The two ratings are not the same.

Wh is Watt-hours. A Watt is voltage x amperage.

maH is milliamperes per hour.

Now, let's do the multiplication.... 4800maH is 4.8aH, or 4.8 amps per hour. If the battery is rated at 11.1 volts... and wattage is voltage x amperage... that would be 53.28Wh. So, the two batteries are not equal... the one at Dell is probably 4400maH, and the one on Amazon would be 53Wh.

No. It's not exactly the same.

watt = amp * volt

In your case 4800ma at 11.1v is 53.28W
