On this page, you will find out how many watts a Nutribullet draws.

Nutribullets were revolutionary when they first hit the market. The excitingly powerful yet easy-to-use blender is loved by millions. The sleek design is compact and looks great in your kitchen. It makes your morning smoothie effortless. One thing to investigate is the power consumption. With multiple models on the market now, you will want to know the electricity required to use your appliance. This can help to work out how much it costs to run or use it off-grid in something like a campervan.

Below we will discuss and test Nutribullet wattage, explain how to work it out for yourself, and calculate the total electricity required.

How Many Watts is a Nutribullet?

The average Nutribullet uses between 600 to 1000 watts.

The exact number depends on the size and model of your Nutribullet. For example, you will find that a mini Magic Bullet uses a little as 200W while a Pro+ can reach over 1000W.

This makes it very important to check the exact power consumption of your own device. In simple terms, the larger your appliance the more powerful it will be. This is because it will have a bigger internal motor to deal with larger quantities of food. 

How to Find Out Your Nutribullet Wattage

There are 3 ways you can work out the wattage of a Nutribullet.

  1. Check Product Specification

The quickest way is to look at the Nutribullet’s specification. The watts (W) is usually written on a sticker on the base of the appliance. If not, you can check the user manual or the manufacturer’s website for technical details. On the website, you will find the power consumption at the top of the product detail.

  1. Use a Wattmeter

A wattmeter is brilliant for getting a live wattage reading and tracking total energy usage of any appliance. You can simply plug it into your Nutribullet to get instant information. 

I used one to test a Nutribullet Pro which gave a live reading of 763W.

  1. Wattage Formula or Calculator

If you know the amperage and voltage of your Nutribullet you can use this to find the maximum running watts. Simply use the formula Amps x Volts = Watts. Or you can head over to the ‘Watt Calculator’ to work this out.

Nutribullet Wattage Examples

Let’s take a look at specific examples of how many watts a Nutribullet draws. Below is a collection of modern Nutribullets with their listed power ratings.

Nutribullet ModelPower Rating (Watts)
magic bullet Mini200
magic bullet250
nutribullet Personal600
nutribullet Pro900
nutribullet Select1000
nutribullet RX1700
Nutribullet Pro+1200

As you can see, the power ratings vary between different Nutribullets. So you should take the time to check your own appliance.

How Much Electricity Does a Nutribullet Use?

You can use Nutribullet wattage to work out how much electricity it uses. Plus this can be useful in understanding how much it costs to run your Nutribullet.

A watt (W) is a measurement of power at a single point in time. A watt-hour is the total amount of electricity used in an hour. For example, a Nutribullet drawing 900W would use 900Wh when running for an hour.

Happily, electricity bills are recorded in kilowatt-hours (kWh). A kilowatt is simply 1000 watts. So a 900W Nutribullet running for 1 hour uses 0.9kWh.

In reality, you use a Nutribullet for 1 minute a day to make a smoothie. This means a 900W Nutribullet uses about 15Wh or 0.015kWh electricity a day. That’s 0.45kWh a month and 5.475kWh a year. 

That’s a rough electricity cost of $0.80 a year to make a smoothie every morning.

Using a Nutribullet Off-Grid

If you’re planning to use your Nutribullet in an off-grid situation like an RV, campervan, boat, or semi-truck the information above is important. It enables you to pick the correct power products and know how long you can run them for.

You can either use a power inverter, portable power station, or generator to generate electricity. 

To make sure everything runs smoothly you should check two things on this equipment – wattage capacity and total energy capacity. 

Your power source, like an inverter, should have a wattage capacity of at least 20% more than your Nutribullet. This ensures it will be able to deliver enough power as they are never 100% efficient. To run a nutribullet Pro, you will need at least 1200W of power capacity. This will give you enough capacity without overworking your equipment. You can reduce this number for smaller appliances. Or for the bigger models you will need to go up to 2000W capacity. 

Secondly, you need to ensure your energy source, like a battery, has enough energy to run the Nutribullet for the required amount of time. As we already know, it will use about 15Wh electricity for each usage. This is the equivalent to 1.25Ah on a 12V battery.

How Many Watts Does a Nutribullet Use Summary

I hope you now have a clear understanding of how many watts a Nutribullet uses.

You should take the time to check what model you have as this will determine the power consumption. It’s surprising how much it can differ. The quickest way to find out is to use the company website which lists the details of each product. Often it’s even in the product title. If you are planning to use a nutribullet off-grid then I suggest you pick up a smaller personal or mini in order to reduce the strain on your power supply.
