Not sure how efficient the charger is, probably reasonably so. A 500wh battery is 1/2 hwh,. Typical domestic cost is around 15p per kwh (unit), maybe a bit less; that gives 7.5p per charge. 15ah 36v battery would be 150wh, around 8.5p.

Typically my often used battery doesn't see a deep SOC probably 50 or 60% then I top it up.
When I plug my battery in to charge my smart meter tells me the kw/h price has gone up by 1p so I use this as pence per hour rate for my charging as charge for me typically is 4 -7hrs depending on SOC.

That’s a heck of a lot of nice bike, I wish I could afford one.
What’s the estimated range, must be 100 miles at least I would think?
