How to Convert Millivolts to Kilovolts

To convert a millivolt measurement to a kilovolt measurement, divide the voltage by the conversion ratio. One kilovolt is equal to 1,000,000 millivolts, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilovolts = millivolts ÷ 1,000,000

The voltage in kilovolts is equal to the millivolts divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 millivolts to kilovolts using the formula above.
5,000,000 mV = (5,000,000 ÷ 1,000,000) = 5 kV

Millivolts and kilovolts are both units used to measure voltage. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Millivolts

One millivolt is equal to 1/1,000 of a volt, which is the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The millivolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. Millivolts can be abbreviated as mV, for example 1 millivolt can be written as 1 mV.

Kilovolts

One kilovolt is equal to 1,000 volts, which are the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The kilovolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilovolts can be abbreviated as kV, for example 1 kilovolt can be written as 1 kV.
