50Ah is the amount of energy a battery can hold it means that the battery can deliver for example 50A for 1 hour or 1A for 50hours. It cannot be converted directly to watts without knowing the duration but can be converted to Wh i.e. 50Ah @ 12V equates to 600Wh. If you know the duration you can convert Wh to W. e.g. 600Wh for 2 hours equals 300W.
