dunick voltaire let see. The manual gives the voltage rating as 120V~60Hz / 3.0 A and as you may know that power P in watts (W) is equal to the voltage V in volts (V) times the current I in amps. So using the equation P=VxI 120Vx3A we get 360Watts. This will of course be peak when the shredder does it toughest job and is working the hardest.

Hi,

Just to expand on OT03's good answer this link describes how to work out the AC power exactly if you need to be precise. http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hba...
