Juice Americas Launches J+ BOOSTER 2 Portable EV Charger in the United States, Canada and Mexico
The portable J+ BOOSTER 2 EV charging station puts an end to anxiety about electric vehicle range
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Aug. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Juice Americas Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Swiss-based Juice Technology AG – the market leader in portable chargers for electric vehicles (EVs) – today announced the availability of its portable two-in-one EV charger, J+ BOOSTER 2, in the North American Market.
J+ BOOSTER 2 enables EV owners to simply take their EV charger on the road to charge their EV from any conventional power socket-outlet. Developed in Switzerland at Juice Technology's Research and Development Center, the North American version of Juice's popular portable EV charger is now certified and available to North American consumers.
"The J+ BOOSTER 2 is like a Swiss army knife of EV charging technology and makes any concerns about vehicle range a thing of the past," said Christoph Erni, founder and CEO of Juice Technology AG. "After all, electricity is available everywhere: you just have to make it accessible."
Rugged, Safe and Reliable
Weighing in at barely 2.2 pounds (1 kg), J+ BOOSTER 2 is made from solid, military-grade aluminum. The in-cable control box is so robust that, even if run over by a tank, it still suffers no damage. The included accessories assortment offers eight NEMA-compliant adapter plugs that are easily attached via the J+ CONNECTOR, Juice's proprietary plug interface.
The patented J+ CONNECTOR is based on proven aerospace engineering and, like the J+ BOOSTER, is both spray-waterproof and dustproof. The adapter plugs are coded so that the right charging power is set to be fully automatic at the socket-outlet according to the available socket input current. The unit delivers a charging power ranging from 720 W to 9.6 kW, so users ideally need only about four to six hours to fully charge a vehicle's battery, depending on the battery pack size.
The J+ CELSIUS temperature sensor installed directly at the plug pins protects socket-outlets against overheating. The residual current device integrated into the J+ BOOSTER 2 for fault current protection eliminates the need to install any expensive DC residual current device in the home – saving users considerable extra expense.
"All these features make this charging station user-friendly at home and on the road and ensure safety every time you charge," said Michael Boehm, Managing Director of Juice Americas. "J+ BOOSTER 2 offers users all the functionality of a full-fledge wall charger with the versatility of a portable device."
Portable charging stations enable drivers to charge their electric cars wherever they park habitually for extended periods of time – during the day at the workplace, or nights at home. This compensates for the irreguar spatial distribution of charging infrastructure and facilitates EV adoption. Ever wider use of portable EV chargers makes the transition to electric mobility fast, flexible and economical.
J+ BOOSTER 2, based on one of the world's top-selling portable EV chargers, has now been specially adapted for the North American power grid. It is certified by the independent testing and certification organization UL and fully meets all applicable standards.
