## How to Convert Megaamperes to Kiloamperes

To convert a measurement in megaamperes to a measurement in kiloamperes, multiply the electric current by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 kiloamperes/megaampere.

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

kiloamperes = megaamperes × 1,000

The electric current in kiloamperes is equal to the electric current in megaamperes multiplied by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megaamperes to kiloamperes using the formula above.
kiloamperes = (5 MA × 1,000) = 5,000 kA

### How Many Kiloamperes Are in a Megaampere?

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

1 MA = 1,000 kA

## What Is a Megaampere?

One megaampere is equal to 1,000,000 amperes, which are the electrical current equal to the flow of one coulomb per second.

The megaampere is a multiple of the ampere, which is the SI base unit for electric current. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for millions, or 106. A megaampere is sometimes also referred to as a megaamp. Megaamperes can be abbreviated as MA; for example, 1 megaampere can be written as 1 MA.

## What Is a Kiloampere?

One kiloampere is equal to 1,000 amperes, which are the electrical current equal to the flow of one coulomb per second.

The kiloampere is a multiple of the ampere, which is the SI base unit for electric current. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for thousands, or 103. A kiloampere is sometimes also referred to as a kiloamp. Kiloamperes can be abbreviated as kA; for example, 1 kiloampere can be written as 1 kA.
