Third Juice World Charging Day: a concentrated load of charging technology
Juice Technology AG, manufacturer of charging stations and software, leader in mobile charging stations for electric vehicles, once again pulls an industry-changing innovation out of its hat on Juice World Charging Day.
This year’s event was all about future-proofing, ease of use and high-quality aesthetics. The Swiss charging station manufacturer presented its latest highlights at the eagerly awaited industry event. The expectations were correspondingly high. Juice more than met these and once again raised the bar quite a bit.
Melting pot of software and hardware
Clean lines, rounded corners, matt silver and glossy black: the new edition of the JUICE CHARGER me with model number 3 comes in a new look that highlights the family resemblance to the most popular mobile charging station JUICE BOOSTER 2 even more clearly. It is now just as resistant as the Booster with IP67 and IK10 and has already received various design awards in the short time since its launch: the Red Dot Award, the iF Design Award and the Green Good Design Award.
The real highlight of the event is the eagerly awaited JUICE BOOSTER 3 air. Visually resembling a more compact version of the JUICE BOOSTER 2, the 11 kW charging station opens up completely new horizons. Users can look forward to no less than seven functional features. As the first j+ device, the JUICE BOOSTER 3 air can be controlled remotely using the j+ pilot app and can be easily updated over the air. That alone makes it a smart wall-box.
It goes without saying that the JUICE BOOSTER 3 air is completely waterproof and incredibly robust (IP67, IK10). In addition to the familiar automatic output detection by adapter plugs, new error detections have been added to further enhance safety. For example, the device switches off if the sockets are incorrectly wired or if the vehicle draws more electricity than intended. With these safety features, the smart gadget weighing just 700 grams (without cable) will undoubtedly quickly establish itself alongside the JUICE BOOSTER 2 as a mobile alternative to the classic wall-box.
Christoph Erni, CEO and founder of Juice Technology AG, is obviously proud of his crew: “What our engineers have achieved over the past few months is incredible. The BOOSTER 3 air is not only significantly more compact now, but at the same time even more functional than any other mobile charging station. The “7-in-1” slogan refers to the numerous possible uses and equipment elements that are included free of charge. It is hard to beat in terms of ease of use and safety. Thanks to the focus on connectivity and software, it is also easy to gradually introduce new functions. So users should keep an eye out for what’s next.”
Delivery capability as a competitive edge
“We can deliver” is arguably the most important phrase at this year’s industry conference by the Swiss full-range retailer, given the ongoing supply chain issues around the world. Containers on stage in Munich’s Olympic Park were symbolic of this. Because Juice delivers by the container – preferably for the aftersales business and to OEMs, in other words vehicle manufacturers. Third on the list of target customers are electricity suppliers and real estate companies. What Juice delivers is something to be proud of – and that is no coincidence.
Daniela Märkl, Head of Communications and PR at Juice, emphasises that in the sustainable mobility sector in particular, the commitment to sustainable business is an important criterion which the company itself and its business partners directly benefit from: “Procurement is a key pillar of Juice’s commitment to sustainability and is therefore continuously improved. Juice builds on long-term relationships and promotes collaboration with suppliers who work sustainably from a social, ecological and economic point of view. This is the only way to ensure quality and achieve planning security for everyone involved.”
Pioneer in suitability for everyday use
The charging station manufacturer makes a point of ensuring that all of its devices are consistently certified to the automotive industry’s high standards – not just in terms of hardware, but also in terms of cyber security. With a delegation on standardisation committees, it also advocates that industry standards can be derived from practical user experiences in everyday life. The stated aim: Users should no longer have to worry about how safe a device is and how to use it. Because all Juice devices meet the same maximum values in terms of safety, tightness, robustness and temperature range. The only question they should have to ask themselves is: “Which charging type am I – mobile or stationary charging?”
