Sparrow’s battery pack will recharge in approximately two hours using 9 KWH when the pack is run for about 50 miles. Typical usage in our various tests has been in the range of 9-12 KWH which consistently yields an operating cost of $.02 a mile. That feels pretty good!
Sparrow uses the J1772 type charging station which has become the de facto standard for electric vehicles. This system provides a safer charging option for both the vehicle and user and can easily be installed in your garage at home. In fact our local Lowe’s home center had them available. Just plug in to a 220 volt, 30 Amp dryer outlet or have an electrician hard wire one in place.
Likely you’ve also seen these types of charging stations around your hometown. Nice thing about these is that they’re easy to find by installing one of the many apps available for both iPhone and Android phones.
