The use of Kilowatt as a phonetic is a pet peeve of mine especially where there 
is a brief pause between kilo and watt.   When I hear kilo I assume the letter k 
is being represented, then when I hear watt I have to decide if the sender is 
also representing the letter w or not.

It seems overly confusing to me.
