What is the difference between kW & kWh?

1 kilowatt is 1,000 watts. The unit watt is a measurement of power and a kilowatt is 1,000 watts of power. This is a measure of energy density – the greater the power, the more energy can be transferred.
Kilowatt hour (kWh) is the measure of the energy content/battery capacity of your car. You can calculate the charging time for a full battery by dividing the battery capacity of your car by the charging capacity of your charge point.

Example: You drive a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV with a battery capacity of 12kWh and want to charge at a single-phase 3.7 kW charge point.

Battery capacity 12 kW / 3.7 kW charging capacity = 3 hours and 15 minutes charging for a full battery.

When charging a battery (of any kind), a special phenomenon occurs: the last 20% of the battery is topped up with so-called trickle charging. That is slow charging to retain the high-quality of the battery.
