How Much Power does a Jigsaw use
Jigsaw: 300 Watts
- A jigsaw uses an electric motor to plung a piston-like blade through material. The blade isn't very big, and the teeth aren't very big, so it doesn't use
- Uses a variable speed motor and trigger, so it uses a variable amount of power, up to about 300 watts.
- Watts: 300
- Kilowatts: 0.3 Kw.
- cost per minute: 6 hundredths of one cent (0.06 ¢)
- cost per hour: 3.6¢
- cost per day: 29¢
- cost per month: $5.47
Power use of these items was actually tested. Individual items will vary, but these are the actual measurements.
