How to Convert Milliamps to Amps (mA to A)
To convert milliamps to amps, divide the number of milliamps by 1000.
Formula: amps = milliamps ÷ 1000
Abbreviated: A = mA ÷ 1000
For example, I tested the solar panel output from some small solar tea candles. The panel on one of the candles had a short circuit current of 46.3 milliamps.
Here's how to convert this number to amps:
46.3 mA ÷ 1000 = 0.0463 A
So, in this example, it would also be correct to say the solar panel has a short circuit current of 0.0463 amps.
That's all there is to it. 🙂
How to Convert Amps to Milliamps (A to mA)
To convert the other way, multiply amps times 1000.
Formula: milliamps = amps × 1000
Abbreviated: mA = A × 1000
To stick with the theme of solar panels, let's say you measure the short circuit current of a large 100 watt solar panel. You get a short circuit current of 6.08 amps.
To convert this value to milliamps, you do the following:
6.08 A × 1000 = 6080 mA
So, expressed in milliamps, you would say this panel has a short circuit current of 6080 milliamps.
