This of course depends on how much your energy costs locally but here is an idea:

- UK/Europe: approximately €2.40/ £ 2.10 month (based on 20 € cents per kWh)
We recommend leaving the soft-top up and the windows open in order for the air to circulate freely and remove any condensation
You can only use the “Outdoor” versions of products outside. The rest are designed for indoor use only. Using them in any other way voids the warranty and risks damaging the device and possibly your vehicle
We do not recommend this as it may capture moisture and limit the circulation of air.
Simple PVC tape will be enough to seal the plastic and prevent air leakage. For larger holes, a small repair kit with replacement material (clear and colored) was provided with your product.
There is no need to remove any liquid from the vehicle as the floor is non-permeable.
We recommend drying your car before it gets put under the cover.
The product is shipped from the factory tightly packed. Unfolding and inflating the device will remove wrinkles. Over time, and depending on the ambient temperature and humidity, the product will smooth out (although some wrinkles may remain). If you want to expedite the process and get an immediate result we recommend using a standard portable clothes steamer. Gently pass the steamer over the product and dry with a cloth or towel.
If the power goes off, unless you have a back-up system, the device will deflate on top of your vehicle. Since the material is soft PVC, there is no risk of damage. Once the power goes back on, the device will auto inflate. We recommend manually assisting the re-inflation of the device.
