No need to remember fancy formulas, converting milliamps to amps is a breeze, but first, for those who need a little extra explanation, let’s check out what they all mean. If you’re a pro and you already know all that, skip down to the part on how to change or convert Milliampere to Ampere, it’s pretty basic so we’ll keep it short and sweet.
What is an ampere?
To give you the quickest Ampere definition, let’s put it quite simply, an Ampere (A) or Amp for short, is the base unit of electric current in the International System of Units (SI). An Ampere unit is the SI base unit of electric current and is used internationally.
As you’ve probably guessed, a Milliampere (mA) is one-thousandth of an ampere, this unit of measurement comes into use in small electric currents.
How to convert Milliamps to to Amps:
To convert Milliamps (mA) to Amps is fairly easy and only takes basic mathematical knowledge.
mA is short for Milliamps. There are 1000 Milliamps in 1 Amp.
You could also write or type it out and then just move the decimal place over 3 spaces.
If you want to convert from mA to A, divide by 1000.
If you want to convert from A to mA, multiply by 1000.
1 mA = 0.001 Amp (A)
10 mA = 0.01 Amp (A)
100 mA = 0.1 Amp (A)
1000 mA = 1 Amp (A)
