The Statvolt (symbol:) is the unit of electrical voltage and electrical potential in the electrostatic CGS unit system (ESU).

It is defined as the electrical voltage at which a force from an erg acts on a charge from a statC :

The conversion into the SI unit volt is:

The conversion factor corresponds to the numerical value of the speed of light in a vacuum in m / s, divided by .
