How much does it cost to charge a Glion Dolly?

Fully charging a Glion Dolly in off-peak hours costs 1 cent in the USA, 5 pence in the UK and Ireland, 2 pennies in Canada, and around 4 cents in the EU. Charging it during peak hours costs 4 cents in the USA, 6 pence in the UK and Ireland, 2 pennies in Canada, and close to 6 cents in the EU.

The Glion Dolly’s battery capacity is 238 Watt-hours (0.238 kWh). A single charge for it costs:

What does charging price depend upon?

electric scooter battery highlighted

Several factors determine the total cost of charging your electric scooter. Some are major, and some are not as important.

The most important ones will be:

  • the energy capacity of your scooter’s battery (how much energy it can store)
  • the cost of electricity in the place where you charge your scooter

Battery energy capacity and charge cost

The biggest factor about how much your charge will cost is the energy storage capacity of your battery.

Batteries degrade over time and their capacity diminishes, but it’s difficult to calculate by how much and how fast. As it gets smaller, the cost of a single charge will be less and less.

However, it’s not just their capacity that degrades, it’s also their performance. That will make batteries charge less effectively in general. Of course, this has a negative impact on charging costs.

Since both of these things happen at the same time, they should rule each other out. We can safely assume they have no effect on charging costs.

Electricity cost and charge cost

The price of electricity will depend on what country you live in. Sometimes, it will also depend on your region specifically.

Different electricity providers offer different tariffs. Often, the default plan is a time-of-use plan, with peak hours and off-peak hours.

Peak hours will typically be around working hours. This is when the electricity cost will be at its highest.

Off-peak hours will generally be later at night, when electricity is the cheapest. In many countries, off-peak hours are longer during weekends.

Off-peak hours can be significantly cheaper, sometimes up to 5 times cheaper!

Besides time-of-use plans, there are also single rate plans. With those, you pay a constant electricity cost no matter what the time of day is.

Also, there are tiered plans, where you pay more as you use more power.

If you’re not sure what your plan is, it is probably a time-of-use plan. Find this out to be 100% sure you’re working with correct data.

Some countries have more than one electricity provider. They can all charge different rates. The most notable example of this is Australia.

Other factors that impact charge cost

Some other factors that will have a lesser impact on your scooter’s charge cost include:

  • your charger’s current and general state (always try to use the original charger!)
  • your electric scooter age
  • the temperature where you charge your scooter (charging in too cold or too hot temperatures negatively impacts the charge efficiency, but also battery life and performance)

These are not as important though. We will not include them in the formula for calculating your electric scooter’s charging cost.

How to calculate the charging cost for my electric scooter?

formula for volts, watts and amps

The easiest way to calculate the charging cost of your electric scooter would be to use the charge cost calculator.

Calculating the cost of a single charge is very easy.

Start with your battery’s energy storage capacity.

This is a value expressed in Watt-hours (Wh), or sometimes in kilo-Watt-hours (kWh). If it’s expressed in Watt-hours, convert it to kilo-Watt-hours by dividing the value by 1000.

Usually, the user manual of your scooter will have this value included. If not, a Google query with your scooter model’s name plus the phrase “battery specifications” or “battery capacity” will provide you with this value.

In some cases, neither the manual nor the Internet has this value. When that is the case, you can still calculate this if you know two other metrics about the battery:

  • its voltage expressed in Volts (V)
  • its charge capacity expressed in Ampere-hours (Ah)

Figuring out the energy storage capacity of the battery then is a matter of multiplying those two values.

1 Wh = 1 V * 1 Ah

The formula for obtaining energy storage capacity from voltage and charge capacity

You need to have both the battery energy storage capacity (kWh), and the price of electricity ($/kWh).

Then, calculating the price is just a matter of multiplying the both.

cost per charge ($) = capacity (kWh) * electrity price ($/kWh)

Calculating the price of a single charge

This assumes charging your battery from completely empty to completely full.

After you have this value, you need to find out the electricity cost in your country or region.

Electricity cost per country

Electricity cost is often expressed in your currency per kilo-Watt-hour. For instance, USD per kilo-Watt-hour ($/kWh), or Euro per kilo-Watt-hour (€/kWh).

If you charge your scooter in off-peak hours, make sure to find out the price for charging during off-peak hours. It will always be less.

For convenience, here’s a table showing the prices in some countries, with the off-peak-hour prices shown when that data was available. The prices are in US Dollars.

I sourced the electricity prices from here: https://www.globalpetrolprices.com/electricity_prices/

Keep in mind, these prices often change. However, the changes are not drastic usually.

These are the approximate prices, which can sometimes differ from your actual price. This is especially true for bigger countries, since different states or regions may have different prices.

Also, many countries have different prices for different months of the year, different electricity providers, or different usage levels. So only use this table as a quick reference.

Electric scooter charging cost vs other means of transport fuel cost

This is one of the major advantages that electric rideables have over every other possible means of transport.

Cars and other gasoline-powered vehicles must be fed fuel constantly. In addition, they require expensive repairs and maintenance. And gasoline is much more expensive than electricity.

Public transportation may be cheaper than owning a car. But you still pay very expensive tickets for using it. And at the end of the day, you are still left with no means of transport you yourself own.

The electric scooter?

You just plug into the power outlet at your home.

That has been one of the major factors behind its massive popularity.

And, of course, you can always take your scooter with you on every mode of public transport.

Can I reduce the charging cost for my electric scooter?

Reducing the charging cost of one single charge is not really feasible. You can do it by getting a smaller battery, but that will come at the price of having weaker performance.

However, you can reduce the frequency of charging, which will have the same effect, and lower your electricity bill.

The best thing you can do is take care of your scooter, and its battery especially, so that it keeps having great efficiency. That includes:

  • never letting it drain
  • charging it regularly
  • not overcharging it
  • not charging it in too hot or too cold temperatures
  • only using the original charger
  • not charging it in fast mode too often

I love electric scooters, so I decided to make a blog about them. I like doing a lot of research on various models and brands, looking for great value and performance, both through data and experience.
