# 24 hour to 12 hour converter

## World's simplest time tool

With this browser-based application, you can convert a 24-hour time format to 12-hour time format. Given clock times between 00:00:00 and 23:59:59, it converts them to clock times between 00:00:00AM and 11:59:59PM with the AM/PM abbreviations. It supports full clock time formats (HH:MM:SS and H:M:S) and short clock time formats (HH:MM, H:M, HH, and H). Created by computer nerds from team Browserling.

24 hour to 12 hour converter tool
What is a 24 hour to 12 hour converter?

This is a quick online utility for converting a 24-hour clock time to 12-hour clock time. The 12-hour clock time convention divides a 24-hour day into two 12-hour periods. The abbreviation A.M. (also AM, a.m. and am) is used when talking about the time interval from 12:00 midnight to 12:00 noon (00:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M.). The abbreviation P.M. (also PM, p.m., and pm) is used when talking about the time interval from 12:00 noon to 12:00 midnight (12:00 P.M. to 00:00 A.M.). For example, the clock time 23:40 in 24-hour format is 11:40 pm in 12-hour format and the 24-hour time 01:01:01 converted to 12-hour time is 01:01:01 am. You can enter multiple 24hr clock times from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59 in the input box. The program will convert each time to the 12hr clock and by default display it in the full "HH:MM:SS am/pm" format (for example, "03:07:40 am"). You can turn off the full time form option and get a simplified time form, such as "HH:MM am/pm" (for example, "03:07 am") or just "HH am/pm" (for example, "03 am"). Similarly, you can turn off the padding option and get time in an even simpler format such as "H:M am/pm" (for example, "3:7 am") or "H am/pm" (for example, "3 am"). You can also switch between four different am/pm indicator formats and add an extra space between the clock time and am/pm abbreviation. Timeabulous!

Full 12hr Clock Time

In the input of this example, we enter multiple 24hr clock times in HH:MM:SS format. We convert them to a 12-hr clock format using the abbreviations "am" and "pm" for the first and second halves of the day. In the output, we use the full format HH:MM:SS with zero-padding turned on, so that hours, minutes, and seconds always have two digits.

**Required options**

Always show hours, minutes,
and seconds in clock time.

Use two digits for hours, minutes,
and seconds in clock time.

Add a space before AM/PM
abbreviation.

Partial 12hr Clock Time

The input time values in this example use a short clock format – sometimes there are just hour values and sometimes just hours and minutes. To convert the time to the 12-hour format and at the same time preserve the input time format, we have disabled the full-time format and padding options.

**Required options**

Use two digits for hours, minutes,

Add a space before AM/PM
abbreviation.

Midnight and Noon

In this example, we convert midnight and noon times to a 12-hr format. As you can see on the first two lines, the time 12 turns to 12p.m. (noon) the time 0 turns to 0a.m. (midnight). If the input time contains its own am/pm indicator (on lines 4, 5, and 6), then it's saved during the conversion and is preserved in the output time.
