## How to Convert Microwatts to Milliwatts

To convert a microwatt measurement to a milliwatt measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One microwatt is equal to 0.001 milliwatts, so use this simple formula to convert:

The power in milliwatts is equal to the microwatts multiplied by 0.001.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 microwatts to milliwatts using the formula above.

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

## Microwatts

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 10^{-6}. Microwatts can be abbreviated as *µW*, for example 1 microwatt can be written as 1 µW.

## Milliwatts

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 10^{-3}. Milliwatts can be abbreviated as *mW*, for example 1 milliwatt can be written as 1 mW.
