JUICE BOOSTER 2: a brace of test wins at Vergleich.org
Independent consumer guide website Vergleich.org declares JUICE BOOSTER 2 the test winner in the 11- and 22-kW wallbox charger categories
Juice Technology AG, producer of electric charging stations and software and the market leader in portable chargers for electric cars, receives double honours for its quality standards from Germany’s independent product comparison and testing website Vergleich.org. From a representative field of 11- and 22-kW wallbox charging stations, the portable wallbox charger JUICE BOOSTER 2 takes the laurels in both performance classes in comparison tests based on objective criteria.
Electric charging stations today are usually either permanently installed wallbox-type units, or portable devices. So it’s not every day that a portable charging station steps up to challenge a field actually reserved for wallboxes. And yet, the JUICE BOOSTER 2 does and is just that: a complete wallbox, and portable too – spotlighted once again by the comparison test results of the independent Vergleich.org website.
A charging station for home and on the road
A wallbox charger at home and, ideally, one in the workplace are needed to efficiently keep an electric car supplied with power. After all, e-cars are recharged anyway while parked. Since charging at home is usually done overnight, 11 kW of charging power is usually adequate there. At your workplace, however, it’s advantageous if charging times are shorter. That’s just what 22-kW wallboxes do. Uniting both power classes in a single unit, the JUICE BOOSTER 2 is as well-suited for wall-mounted installation as it is for mobile use.
Double test winner
The comparison tests conducted by Vergleich.org make plainly clear that equipment features as well as charging times and safety aspects are decisive to product rating. One particular advantage that stands out is that the JUICE BOOSTER 2 is equipped not only with an integrated residual current device, but also with temperature monitoring in its household plugs (Schuko plug for Germany as well as T12/T13 plugs for Switzerland, Type-L plug for Italy, and Type-G plug for the United Kingdom). These optimum protective measures make charging with the portable wallbox worry-free.
Among the nine tested 22-kW wallboxes, the JUICE BOOSTER 2 is by far and away the lightest unit, weighing in at only 1 kg. It’s ruggedly built, dust- and water-tight, and thus ideally suited to take along with you to work or when travelling.
“This verdict by the independent consumer portal Vergleich.org is especially important to us because it’s not the rating from a jury of experts who limit their appraisal to strictly technical aspects, rather it considers the assessments of consumers who use the device on a daily basis,” explains Christoph Erni, CEO of Juice Technology AG. “ It may seem astonishing that a portable charger came out the test winner in two categories for permanently installed, wall-mounted charging stations. But this just demonstrates what the JUICE BOOSTER 2 is: a lightweight, portable and highly reliable wallbox for home and on the road.”
An independent opinion
The online consumer magazine Vergleich.org compares reviews by prestigious testing sources with customer reviews from popular mail-order businesses. The assessments surveyed in this way are weighted, delivering a final compound evaluation that is then reviewed by the editing team. All comparisons, test reports and advisory guides for essential products and services are independent and transparent. Vergleich.org focuses on the relative price-performance ratio: if the quality is twice as good, the product may also cost twice as much.
The key benefits of JUICE BOOSTER 2 in a nutshell:
- Recharge your car from any power socket: The plug adapters supplied with the JUICE BOOSTER 2 enable you to charge your electric car from any conventional household or industrial power socket or public charging station anywhere in the world.
- Automatic detection of socket input current: The charger always adjusts automatically to the optimum charging power, ruling out any risk of overloading the power socket capacity.
- Automatic protection against overheating: The JUICE BOOSTER 2 continuously monitors the temperature at both plug pins of all household socket adapters.
- JUICE BOOSTER 2 is completely waterproof (IP 67) and can withstand being run over by a wheel load of up to three tonnes.
- 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.
- Tested by TÜV SÜD: JUICE BOOSTER 2 is the world’s first portable charging station in the 22 kW class to have been tested by TÜV SÜD for compliance with IEC 62752 Ed. 1 2016 including AMD1 2018.
- The Pro version of the JUICE BOOSTER 2 is additionally equipped with exchangeable vehicle-end adapters.
