Milliamps (mA) and amperes (A) are both electrical current units, but they are different magnitudes. mA is a smaller unit than A. Ampere, generally abbreviated as amp, is the basic or SI unit of the electric current. In contrast, a milliampere (or mA) is 1/1000 of an ampere (or A).
In mathematical terms, 1 amp is equal to 1000 milliamps. You can use this equation to convert mA to A or vice versa. If you are planning to invest in solar power stations, you'll need to look for their amps or milliamps value and match it with the power requirements of your appliances.
Generally, the higher the value of amps, the better your solar power station. Jackery Explorer Portable Power Stations come with high wattage and ampere value.

What is Milliamps to Amps (mA to A)
Milliampere is the multiple of ampere, an SI unit of electric current. The prefix "milli" generally means one-thousandths or . The small amounts of electrical current flowing through the conductor are typically measured by milliamperes.
In other words, a milliamp specifies the battery capacity. One example of a milliamp is a mobile phone battery specified by 3000 milliamp-hour. This means the battery can supply around 3000 mA for 1 hour.
The amperage, also called amp, is the electric current constant equivalent to the flow of one coulomb per second. In the metric system, the SI unit for electric current is amp.

Milliamps to Amps (mA to A) FAQs
1. How many mA is equal to 1A?
One milliampere is equal to 1/1000 of an ampere. In other words, the milliampere is the multiple of an ampere, which is the electrical current equivalent to the flow of one coulomb per second. You can easily convert mA to A using the formula: mA = 1/1000A.
2. How to convert mAh to Wh?
Watt-hour, abbreviated as Wh, is the energy unit equal to one watt of power generated or consumed in one hour. Watt-hour and milliamp-hour both are generally used to describe the battery capacity.
The simple formula to convert mAh to Wh is:
Watt-hours (Wh) = milliampere (mAh) × Volts (V) ÷ 1000
For instance, if the power station has a mAh of 50,000 and 120V, the battery capacity in watt-hour would be:
Milliamp Hours (mAh)
Watt Hours (Wh)
3. What are the relations of amps, watts, and volts?
Converting mA to A becomes necessary when it comes to purchasing a solar power bank or generator. You can compare the mAh value of your appliances and find a compatible battery system to provide power.
