Media Alert: 42 tonnes - can Juice Booster 2 really withstand something of this size?
Swiss charging station manufacturer Juice Technology AG is putting the portable charging station through a gruelling test regime.
But Juice Technology AG has already demonstrated many times before that JUICE BOOSTER 2 really is up to the mark. In the company's Mission Booster video, they even set the portable 22 kW charging station on fire - but it carried on charging undeterred.
Now the team were set to go one step further - a VERY big step further. They claim that you can safely drive over JUICE BOOSTER 2 with a wheel load of up to three tonnes, six times the specified minimum load. But this wasn't enough for the Juice team. They were determined to go to the limit, the ultimate test: first a toy tractor, then a mountain bike, followed by a Tesla Model 3, and even a Saurer 2DM truck (weighing in at a hefty 12 tonnes) - and still JUICE BOOSTER 2 carries on charging. But what happens next is quite staggering:
we see a Leopard 1 tank, weighing a cool 42 tonnes, bearing down on the portable charging station. The result? See for yourself: https://youtu.be/9mnQkOGxMXY.
The key benefits of JUICE BOOSTER 2 in a nutshell:
1. Recharge your car from any power socket: With JUICE BOOSTER 2 and its range of adapters, you can connect your electric car to any standard household or industrial socket anywhere in the world. 2. Automatic power detection: The charger always adjusts automatically to the optimum charging power, ruling out any risk of overloading the power socket capacity. 3. JUICE BOOSTER 2 is completely waterproof (IP 67) and can withstand being run over by a wheel load of up to three tonnes. 4. Type 2 mains adapters are available for charging sockets, and Type 3c adapters are also available for drivers in France. This means that JUICE BOOSTER 2 can also be used at public charging stations, neatly avoiding the need for a separate charging cable. 5. The JUICE CONNECTOR adapter plug is CE-compliant and designed so that additional functions can be added at a later date. Giving drivers the confidence that buying JUICE BOOSTER 2 and its adapters is a long-term investment.
