## How to Convert Milliwatts to Microwatts

To convert a measurement in milliwatts to a measurement in microwatts, multiply the power by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 microwatts/milliwatt.

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

microwatts = milliwatts × 1,000

The power in microwatts is equal to the power in milliwatts multiplied by 1,000.

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

### How Many Microwatts Are in a Milliwatt?

There are **1,000** microwatts in a milliwatt, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 mW = 1,000 µW

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

## What Is a Milliwatt?

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 thousandths, or 10^{-3}. Milliwatts can be abbreviated as *mW*; for example, 1 milliwatt can be written as 1 mW.

## What Is a Microwatt?

One microwatt is the power equal to 1/1,000,000 of a watt, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1/1,000,000 of a joule per second.

The microwatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for millionths, or 10^{-6}. Microwatts can be abbreviated as *µW*; for example, 1 microwatt can be written as 1 µW.
