How to Convert Milliamperes to Kiloamperes

To convert a measurement in milliamperes to a measurement in kiloamperes, divide the electric current by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 milliamperes/kiloampere.

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

kiloamperes = milliamperes ÷ 1,000,000

The electric current in kiloamperes is equal to the electric current in milliamperes divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 milliamperes to kiloamperes using the formula above.
kiloamperes = (5,000,000 mA ÷ 1,000,000) = 5 kA

Milliamperes and kiloamperes are both units used to measure electric current. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What Is a Milliampere?

One milliampere is equal to 1/1,000 of an ampere, which is the electrical current equal to the flow of one coulomb per second.

The milliampere is a multiple of the ampere, which is the SI base unit for electric current. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for thousandths, or 10-3. A milliampere is sometimes also referred to as a milliamp. Milliamperes can be abbreviated as mA; for example, 1 milliampere 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.
