I was wondering of any could tell me how to calculate the battery charge cost of a 500watt/13.4ah ebike battery? How many kwh do a 500watt battery contain and how many watts do the 2A Bosch charger use?

If you're concerned about finances, there are more costly items such as inner tubes, brake pads, tires, cleaning products, bags, locks, and a host of other items that will cut into your budget.

Not worried about the charging cost, just curious and needed to know the circa cost when I am going to ask my employer if I can charge my bike at their expense everyday, while at work.

“ Multiply the battery voltage and amp hour rating to get watt hours ie. 360 volt 10 amp hour battery has 360 watt hours (divide by 1,000 to get Kilowatt hours)

Check your local electricity prices, the average cost per Kilowatt hour in the USA at the time of this guide was $0.12

Multiply the Kilowatt size of your battery by the cost per Kilowatt hour electrical rate ie. .36 and $0.12 = a complete charging cost of $0.0342 or roughly four cents

Estimate your trip distance cost by dividing the charge cost by the average range of your battery pack… I estimate the lowest range per charge by dividing the watt hour capacity of the pack by 20 ie. 360 / 20 = 18 miles per charge and now we divide $0.0342 by 18 to get $0.00171 per mile. That’s less than two tents of a penny per mile on an electric bike looking at electricity alone!"
