# How to convert milliamps to amps

How to convert electric current from milliamps (mA) to amps (A).

### milliamps to amps conversion

The current *I*_{(A)} in amps is equal to the current *I*_{(mA) }
in milliamps divided by 1000 miiliamps per amp:

*I*_{(A)} = *I*_{(mA)}* *
/* *1000mA/A

So amps are equal to milliamps divided by 1000 miiliamps per amp:

amp = milliamp / 1000

or

A = mA / 1000

#### Example

Convert current of 300 milliamps to amps:

The current I in amps (A) is equal to 300 milliamps (mA) divided by 1000mA/A:

*I*_{(A)} = 300mA / 1000mA/A = 0.3A
