Onewheel Cost per Charge & Cost per Mile Calculator

From the Onewheel V1 to GT have varied battery sizes. This guide below covers how much it costs per mile and what it cost to charge your Onewheel. each battery size, what it cost to charge them and how much you get per mile.

One wheels have either a 324Wh (Pint X & XR) or 525Wh (GT) battery which equates to 0.324 kWh or 0.525 kWh of electricity to fully charge the Onewheel. This means it takes less than 1 kilowatt hour of electricity to fully charge the board.

Onewheel Charging Cost Calculator

The calculator below simply requires you to have 2 items of data. Your Onewheel model (Pint, Pint X, XR, CBXR, GT) and the cost you pay in electricity per kilowatt-hour. Remember to take in consideration all fees, taxes and separate charges. Many utility companies advertise a “supply” charge, but there are also separate charges such as “delivery” charges as well. Its also important to know that there are peak and off peak charge rates.

The best way to get the most accurate kwh you pay is to review your latest electricity bill, find how many kilowatt hours you used and take the total charges for that month (including taxes and all) and divide by that kilowatt usage.

Electricity Cost to Ride a Onewheel

1. Select your Onewheel:

2. Enter your cost per kWh (0.32, 0.3, 0.42, .5, etc):

Finding your Electricity KWH cost



while the formula gives you a reasonable estimate of the cost of charging a Onewheel battery, the actual cost may vary depending on several factors, including efficiency losses and other variables.

Miles per Kilowatt Hour on a Onewheel

OnewheelWatt Hours (kWh)Range (mi)Miles Per kWh
Pint0.1486-840.5 to 54 miles/kWh
Pint (Quart)0.23012-1552 to 65.2 miles/kWh
Pint X0.32412-1837 to 55.5 miles/kWh
XR0.32412-1837 to 55.5 miles/kWh
GT0.52520-3238 to 61 miles/kWh
CBXR/JWXR0.56732-4056 to 70.5 miles/kWh

The above table covers the most popular Onewheels along with their respective battery sizes. Within each model, I’ve provided what you can expect in mileage from 1 kilowatt hour of electricity usage. Remember all Onewheels have less than 1 kWh sized battery so it would take multiple charges to even obtain a single kilowatt hour of usage.

This is not so important to know but it is an interesting fact. As the world is pivoting to electric vehicles, often we see what these vehicles are getting per kWH. In reality, there are some losses and variables that may affect the actual cost of charging a battery.

One of the major factors that affects the actual cost is the efficiency of the charging process. When a battery is charged, some energy is lost due to factors such as heat generation, resistance in the charging circuit, and chemical reactions within the battery itself. The efficiency of the charging process can vary depending on the type of battery and the charging method used, among other factors. The calculator above does not account for these things but does provide a general cost that is pretty accurate.

Using a Hypercharger for Better Results?

The use of Future Motion’s Hyperchargers will not make charging the battery less expensive however it will charge it faster. Stated above, the actual cost of charging a battery may be affected by the charging process. Some considerations are the ambient temperature, the age and condition of the battery, and the charging speed. Charging a battery at a very high rate can generate more heat, which can reduce the efficiency of the charging process and potentially damage the battery. So while no value is provided here, know that using a Hypercharger is actually less efficient (energy-wise not timewise) than using a standard charger.

I do not recommend Hyperchargers. They are often recommended for infrequent use and to carry with you on your travels so that you can quickly charge up at a coffee shop or even an EV car charge station. Proper battery maintenance is key and its not the easiest task to replace a Onewheel battery so make it last.


Riders that end up with a battery that becomes less efficient, has bad cells or doesn’t hold a complete charge end up wanting to replace their battery to get back their old range. In many cases, the range improves (upgrading to a CBXR / JWXR).

Miles per kWH of a Onewheel vs a Tesla and other EV Vehicles

Surprisingly, when you break down the miles per kilowatt hour, you realize that EV vehicles are not the best on mileage. Here is a list of the top EV vehicles and their respective miles per kWh.

  1. Tesla Model 3 (5.08 miles per kWh)
  2. Renault Megane E-Tech (4.87 miles per kWh)
  3. Hyundai Kona Electric (4.8 miles per kWh)
  4. Volkswagen ID.3 (4.8 miles per kWh)
  5. Fiat 500e (4.57 miles per kWh)
  6. Renault Zoe (4.59 miles per kWh)
  7. Peugeot e-208 (4.5 miles per kW)
  8. MINI Electric (4.45 miles per kWh)
  9. Niro EV (4.39 miles per kWh)
  10. Citroen e-C4 (4.38 miles per kWh)

Depending on the Onewheel, the miles per kWH range from 40 to 70 miles per kilowatt hour. Of course theres a huge difference between car mileage and a PEV however this is just to demonstrate the differences between the them. Riding a Onewheel is a relatively green option for commuting. Float on!
