We report measurements of the inclusive electron momentum spectra in decays of charged and neutral B mesons, and of the ratio of semileptonic branching fractions B(B+-> Xe nu) and B(B-0 -> Xe nu). These were performed on a sample of 231x10(6) B (B) over bar events recorded with the BABAR detector at the Upsilon(4S) resonance. Events are selected by fully reconstructing a hadronic decay of one B meson and identifying an electron among the decay products of the recoiling (B) over bar meson. We obtain B(B+-> Xe nu)/B(B-0 -> Xe nu)=1.074 +/- 0.041((stat))+/- 0.026((syst)).
