Problems of traffic jams and parking are a thing of the past; you can manage climbs or long distances with the wind in your face without difficulties, whether or not you’re a sporty type: electric bikes bring many advantages!
The other side of the coin is that they have to be recharged and this adds to your energy bill... But how much will it cost you?
To calculate the cost of recharging your battery, you need to know:
You will find the first two pieces of data written on the battery or in the manual for your electric bike.
To calculate the cost of recharging your electric bike battery, simply:
In the table below we compared the cost of recharging 2 bikes: one with a voltage of 25 V and the other with a voltage of 36 V.
We have also taken into account a price per kWh of €0.20.h.
|Voltage (V)||25 V||36 V|
|Charging Capacity (Ah)||10 Ah||10 Ah|
|Energetic Capacity (Wh)||250 W||360 W|
|Consumption for 1 charge (kWh)||0,25 kWh||0,36 kWh|
|Cost for 1 charge||€ 0,05||€ 0,072|
|Cost for 50 charges||€ 2,50||€ 3,60|
|Cost for 150 charges||€ 7,50||€ 10,80|
Obviously, the use you make of your bike (occasional or daily) and the type of model chosen will have a direct influence on the consumption and cost of your electric bike.
