If you’ve read our Best Sur Ron Battery Charger Options article, you might have a great idea which Sur Ron aftermarket charger you want. But how much will it set you back in charging costs? Read on to find out.
Electric dirt bikes are one of the cheapest ways to get around. In deciding how much it costs to charge a Sur Ron, though, there are some things to keep in mind.
How Much Does it Cost to Charge a Sur Ron?
Charging a Sur Ron costs about 4 to 12 cents per kW on average. It depends on your battery voltage, capacity, and local rates. Higher voltage, higher capacity batteries cost more to charge.
How Much Does it Cost to Charge the Sur Ron X Stock Battery?
“How much does it cost to charge the Sur Ron X stock battery?” Good question — it’s $20. I’m kidding, it’s not that simple.
Here’s a breakdown of how to calculate the cost of charging the Sur Ron X stock battery, as well as the factors that affect the price.
You’ll need 3 pieces of information to figure out your battery charging costs:
- Battery voltage
- Battery amp hour
- Electricity rates in your area
There should be a voltage and amp hour rating on your battery. In case it’s not listed, you can search online, look in your manual, or contact the manufacturer.
The easiest way to find your local electrical rates is to check online. You might be able to find it on your local electric bill or just call the power company.
Here’s how to calculate cost per charge:
1.) To get watt hours (Wh), multiply voltage (V) and amp hours (Ah).
- Let’s say 60V x 12Ah = 720Wh.
2.) To get Kilowatt Hours, divide the Wh (from step 1) by 1000.
- Here is an example: 720Wh / 1000 = 0.72 KWh
3.) Multiply the KWh (from step 2) by your local rate per KWh.
- 0.72 KWh x $0.1042 (2022 USA) = $0.075024, which is roughly 7.5 cents.
How Much Does it Cost to Charge a Sur Ron X Lithium Battery?
The cost to charge a Sur Ron X lithium battery can pretty much be calculated in the same way as the stock battery above.
Although, you can probably save a lot more since lithium batteries last longer than the sealed lead acid stock batteries. Plus, you get more range for every charge.
How Much Charging Does the Sur Ron X Battery Take?
Every kind of Sur Ron battery varies by how much charging it’ll take to fill up.
However, the stock Sur Ron X battery takes about 3 hours from 0 – 100%. Not a bad number, but you can probably speed it up using a fast charger.
Bigger batteries take longer to charge. The biggest battery we’ve found takes a menacing 10 hours to charge using the stock charger. But you also get quadruple the amount of time on the saddle — which I’d call a great deal.
What Affects Charging Costs?
You pay a different amount to charge a Sur Ron depending on where you charge it (home, workplace, public), how you use the vehicle, your region, how much power you need, and how much equipment and installation you need.
