How to Convert Milliwatts to Microwatts

Convert milliwatts to microwatts with this simple formula:

microwatts = milliwatts × 1,000

Converting a milliwatt power measurement to a microwatt measurement involves multiplying the power by the conversion ratio to find the result. One milliwatt is equal to 1,000 microwatts, so to convert simply multiply by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 milliwatts to microwatts using the formula above.
5 mW = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 µW

Milliwatts and microwatts are both units used to measure power. Learn more about power and find more power measurement conversion calculators. Milliwatts are a power measurement and can be abbreviated as mW, for example 1 mW. Microwatts are a power measurement and can be abbreviated as µW, for example 1 µW.
