Juice Technology Introduces new Universal Charger for EVs

Juice Technology, a Swiss-based market leader in 22 kW charging controllers across Europe, is now delivering its 3-in-1 charging solution for the Opel Mokka-e electric vehicle as an official tier-one supplier to the PSA Group. The UNIVERSAL CHARGER is already available from the Opel order configurator for OPEL’s Corsa-e, Grandland X Hybrid4 and Grandland X Hybrid, Zafira-e Life and Vivaro-e models.

In order to avoid reliance on expensive fixed, wallbox chargers, Opel is offering Juice Universal Chargers that functions as mobile charging station while on the road. It also acts as a a full-power wall-mounted station at home, and a charging cable for public charging stations.

Christoph Erni, founder and CEO of Juice Technology said, “Continued rapid expansion of global electric charging infrastructure is enormously important for development of the e-mobility sector. Producers of charging infrastructure and the automotive industry need to closely collaborate to leverage the best possible advancement of this technology, enabling them to present users with a perfectly functioning holistic solution. OPEL has already taken this step and is resolutely pursuing this approach by offering buyers of OPEL electric cars, including the newest models, a care-free charging solution: the UNIVERSAL CHARGER. It’s everything in a single device that’s attractively priced and, technically, represents the state of the art.”

Experts at Juice Technology claim that the chargers are advanced yet intuitive to use and offers precisely what electric car drivers need. The universal charger is based on the technology of the TUV SUD-certified mobile 22kW ‘Juice Booster 2’. It is said to be the smallest and handiest standard-compliant mobile charging station in its performance class. Juice Tech reports that in the tests of mobile chargers conducted by the German motoring association ADAC and its Austrian counterpart OAMTC, the Juice Booster 2 emerged the clear winner. The universal charger retailed with Opel Mokka-e has exactly the same functions, standards and safety specifications. It is also compatible with all Juice Booster 2 adapters and add-ons, allowing Universal Charger owners to add to their set as they require (incl. Type 2, CEE16 and shockproof adapters).
