      Sorry for the sarcasm. Perhaps this will help you...The formula for Watts is Volts times Amps. 12 Volts multiplied by 5 Amps equals 60 Watts.


      The formula for Volts is Watts divided by Amps. 60 watts divided 5 Amps equals 12 Volts....  more

    P= EXIWATTS equall VOLTS X AMPSName plate will be located on your equipment. Wattage is what is used to rate your usage of power ( watts)If you mean AMPS for calculating circuit for figuring wire size and breaker size, the name plate should have maximum amps on the name tag hope this helps.

    Your not going to have enough light for a big plant and all your lower flowers will be very fluffy if you flower with CFLs. You have to keep CFLs within 2 inches of your plant for them to have enough intensity to even help them grow. Get you a good grow light for around $100.00 instead and you will be much happier. For example, you can get a 400 watt HID grow light like a 400 watt digital dimmable ballast, bulb hood, MH bulb (veg), and HPS bulb (flower). The whole grow light kit from Amazon for $119.00. This will grow good dense buds. Or a LED grow light would be better than CFLs. I have heard of growers having good crops with the MarsHydro leds or the Vivosun led grow lights also. There is a Vivosun 300 watt led for $65.00 on Amazon. I don't grow with LEDs, so I don't know how well that light grows but since it is an actual grow light it would have to be better than CFLs. Good luck and happy growing my friend!

    If it were me ,If I only want to grow one plant I would be looking at the OpticLED 1 with its deep penatration light,2'x2' foot print for around a hundred bucks depending on where you buy it.  ...https://opticledgrowlights.com/products/optic-1-cree-cxb3590-132w-standalone-cob

    You will need some high wattage bulbs if you are only going to use two of them for one plant. Maybe you should think about using 6 to 8 bulbs instead of just two. Peace
