How to Convert Henries to Millihenries

To convert a measurement in henries to a measurement in millihenries, multiply the electrical inductance by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 millihenries/henry.

Since one henry is equal to 1,000 millihenries, you can use this simple formula to convert:

millihenries = henries × 1,000

The electrical inductance in millihenries is equal to the electrical inductance in henries multiplied by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 henries to millihenries using the formula above.
millihenries = (5 H × 1,000) = 5,000 mH

How Many Millihenries Are in a Henry?

There are 1,000 millihenries in a henry, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 H = 1,000 mH

Henries and millihenries are both units used to measure electrical inductance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What Is a Henry?

One henry is equal to the inductance of a conductor in which there is one volt of electromotive force when the current through the conductor is increased by one ampere per second.[1]

The henry is the SI derived unit for electrical inductance in the metric system. Henries can be abbreviated as H; for example, 1 henry can be written as 1 H.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology recommends using "henries" as the plural form of the unit, however the usage of "henrys" is also common.[2]

What Is a Millihenry?

One millihenry is equal to 1/1,000 of a henry, which is the inductance of a conductor with one volt of electromotive force when the current is increased by one ampere per second.

The millihenry is a multiple of the henry, which is the SI derived unit for electrical inductance. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for thousandths, or 10-3. Millihenries can be abbreviated as mH; for example, 1 millihenry can be written as 1 mH.
