Re: Cost to charge batteries
TIME TO THROW IN THE MONKEY WRENCH
went to the campground this weekend and read the name plate on the chargers... (many).
The power inputs are 120volts at 9 or 9.5 amps. ( 120 x 9= 1080 watts per hour)
we have be assuming ( or i have ) that these chargers are only 200 or 300 watts......NOT THE CASE...
so at even the cheap texas rates of 13 cents per KW ( 11 cents plus tax)
1080 watts x 14 hours=15,120 watts or 15.12kw
15.12kw x $0.13 = $1.96 per charge (or $0.14 cents per hour)
this is about 4 times higher than what everyone is saying
see attached photo of charger nameplate
