How to Convert Milliwatts to Microwatts

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

microwatts = milliwatts × 1,000

The power in microwatts is equal to the milliwatts multiplied 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. 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.

Microwatts

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 10-6. Microwatts can be abbreviated as µW, for example 1 microwatt can be written as 1 µW.
