Balance for hour based $160 droplet

I want to use $160 droplet (8 cores) with hour based billing. I don’t need it for full month (it will be too expensive), just for some performance testing. What minimal balance I should have?

The $160/month droplet incurs charges at a rate of $ 0.238 / hr and charges cease once you destroy the droplet so you can estimate your cost by multiplying 0.238 by the number of hours you plan to use your droplet.
