In this article, we’re going to be discussing how many amps, or amperes, that a uses.
Now, as we all know, wine coolers come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. And not only this, the level of current depends on multiple factors, including the settings, age, technology, and the unit’s cleanliness in terms of having its fans/vents being cleaned.
With that being said, we’ve gone about providing the average consumption based on general sizes, including mini, small, medium and large-sized wine coolers. We’ve also included some other variants, which we’ve discussed further below.
Therefore, without further ado, let’s talk consumption!
What are Amps or Amperes?
Amps is the abbreviated version of Amperes or , and this unit measures electrical current. To work out the amount of current that a is using, we can use a simple calculation which is:
Amps = Watts (Power) / Volts (Voltage)
How many amps will a use?
We’ve included approximate (electrical current) consumption values below.
Each value is based on a particular product that meets the criteria for being categorised as either small (below 20 bottles), medium (21-49 bottles) or large-sized (50+ bottles).
We’ve also included built in, single zone and wine coolers. This is so you can get a much better indication as to which uses the most/least current of . consumption values for , wine coolers, ,
Typical – Consumption
- Mini : 50w/110v = 0.45A
- Small : 95w/120v = 0.79A
- Medium : 90w/110v = 0.81A
- Large : 150w/115v = 1.30A
- : 50w/110v = 0.45A
- : 76w/120v = 0.63A
- : 90w/120v = 0.75A
- Built in : 100w/110v = 0.90A
- Single zone : 90w/110v = 0.81A
- : 100w/110v = 0.90A
As we mentioned at the beginning of this article, and hopefully from what you’ve seen in the paragraph directly above. Wine fridges can vary quite substantially in the number of amps (current) that they use.
Therefore, to be completely accurate, you’ll need to check model-by-model.
