Which costs more to fire: a cone 10 or cone 8 kiln?

If two digital electric kilns--a cone 8 kiln and a cone 10 kiln--were fired with the same program, they should shut off at roughly the same time. A cone 10 kiln ordinarily draws more amperage than an equivalent cone 8 kiln, so you would think that a cone 10 would cost more to fire. But if you fired the cone 10 kiln side by side with a cone 8 kiln of equal size and insulation to the same cone number, the firing cost should be the same. This is because the cone 10 kiln would cycle on for shorter periods than would the cone 8 kiln. (Digital kilns cycle on and off throughout most of the firing. That's why they make a clicking noise.)
