## How to Convert Milliwatts to Kilowatts

To convert a milliwatt measurement to a kilowatt measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One milliwatt is equal to 1.0E-6 kilowatts, so use this simple formula to convert:

The power in kilowatts is equal to the milliwatts multiplied by 1.0E-6.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 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.
