#### Milliampere-hours to Ampere-hours

mAh means milliamp Hour and is a unit that measures (electric) power over time. It is commonly used to measure the energy capacity of a battery. In general, the more mAh and the longer the battery capacity or battery life. An ampere hour or amp hour (symbol: A⋅h or A h; often also unofficially denoted as Ah) is a unit of electric charge, having dimensions of electric current multiplied by time, equal to the charge transferred by a steady current of one ampere flowing for one hour, or 3,600 coulombs.

To convert a milliampere-hour measurement to an ampere-hour measurement, divide the electric charge by the conversion ratio.

Since one ampere-hour is equal to 1,000 milliampere-hours, you can use this simple formula to convert:

ampere-hours = milliampere-hours ÷ 1,000

The electric charge in ampere-hours is equal to the milliampere-hours divided by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 500 milliampere-hours to ampere-hours using the formula above.

500 mAh = (500 ÷ 1,000) = 0.5 Ah

#### Milliampere-hours

One milliampere-hour is the electric charge equal to the charge conveyed by a current of one milliampere for one hour. One milliampere-hour is equal to 3.6 coulombs.

The milliampere-hour is a non-SI metric unit for electric charge. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. A milliampere-hour is sometimes also referred to as a milliamp-hour. Milliampere-hours are usually abbreviated as mAh, although the formally adopted expression is mA·h. The abbreviation mA h is also sometimes used. For example, 1 milliampere-hour can be written as 1 mAh, 1 mA·h, or 1 mA h.

In formal expressions, the centered dot (·) or space is used to separate units used to indicate multiplication in an expression and to avoid conflicting prefixes being misinterpreted as a unit symbol.

#### Ampere-hours

One ampere-hour is the electric charge equal to the charge conveyed by a current of one ampere for one hour. One ampere-hour is equal to 3,600 coulombs.

The ampere-hour is a non-SI metric unit for electric charge. An ampere-hour is sometimes also referred to as an amp-hour. Ampere-hours are usually abbreviated as Ah, although the formally adopted expression is A·h. The abbreviation A h is also sometimes used. For example, 1 ampere-hour can be written as 1 Ah, 1 A·h, or 1 A h.
