How to Convert Microwatts to Milliwatts

To convert a measurement in microwatts to a measurement in milliwatts, divide the power by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 microwatts/milliwatt.

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

milliwatts = microwatts ÷ 1,000

The power in milliwatts is equal to the power in microwatts divided by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 microwatts to milliwatts using the formula above.
milliwatts = (5,000 µW ÷ 1,000) = 5 mW

Microwatts and milliwatts are both units used to measure power. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What Is a Microwatt?

One microwatt is the power equal to 1/1,000,000 of a watt, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1/1,000,000 of a joule per second.

The microwatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for millionths, or 10-6. Microwatts can be abbreviated as µW; for example, 1 microwatt can be written as 1 µW.

What Is a Milliwatt?

One milliwatt is the power equal to 1/1,000 of a watt, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1/1,000 of a joule per second.

The milliwatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for thousandths, or 10-3. Milliwatts can be abbreviated as mW; for example, 1 milliwatt can be written as 1 mW.
