Watt-hour to Milliamp-hour (Wh to mAh) Formula

To convert electrical energy from watt-hours to milliampere-hours, we can use this formula: mAh = (Wh x 1,000) / V.

$$\text{Energy in mAh} = \frac{\text{Energy in Wh} \times 1{,}000}{\text{Voltage}}$$

Or

$${mAh} = \frac{Wh \times 1{,}000}{V}$$

Where Wh is the electrical energy in watt-hours, V is the voltage of the energy source, and mAh is the equivalent energy capacity in milliamp-hours.

How to convert watt-hours to milliamp-hours?

To convert energy value from watt-hours to milliamp-hours, follow the simple steps below:

  1. Write down the energy value in watt-hours (Wh).
  2. Multiply it by 1,000.
  3. Divide the result with the battery nominal voltage (V).
  4. The result from the equation is the value of an energy capacity in milliamp-hours (mAh).

Example: Find the energy capacity of an Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max battery

What is the energy capacity of an iPhone 14 Pro Max battery with a nominal voltage of 3.86V that can produce 16.68678 Wh of electrical energy? Assuming it can use 100% of its energy capacity.

To calculate the energy capacity in milliamp-hours or mAh, use the following formula and follows by entering the given values.

$\text{Energy in mAh} = \frac{\text{Energy in Wh}}{\text{Voltage}}$
$\text{Energy in mAh} = \frac{16.68678\ Wh}{3.86\ V}$

Therefore,

$\text{Energy in mAh} = {4,323\ mAh}$

So the energy capacity of the 3.86V battery is 4,323 mAh.

Alternatively, our Wh to mAh conversion calculator can achieve the same result by simply entering the value of electrical energy in watt-hours and voltage in volts.
