## How to Convert Milliwatts to Kilowatts

To convert a milliwatt measurement to a kilowatt measurement, divide the power by the conversion ratio. One kilowatt is equal to 1,000,000 milliwatts, so use this simple formula to convert:

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

**For example,**here's how to convert 5,000,000 milliwatts to kilowatts using the formula above.

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

## 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.

## Kilowatts

One kilowatt is the power equal to 1,000 watts, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1,000 joules per second.

The kilowatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 10^{3}. Kilowatts can be abbreviated as *kW*; for example, 1 kilowatt can be written as 1 kW.
