EMW's JuiceBox Level 2 Charger a hit on Kickstarter for just $109
The charger in question here is the Electric Motor Werks (EMW) JuiceBox, an open source, Level 2 (15kW) EV charging station with a J1772 connector. There are two different versions available, Base and Premium, and they come pre-assembled or DIY. The prices were lower during the successful Kickstarter campaign that ended a few weeks ago, but now the Juiceboxes start at $139.00 each. That's for the unassembled Base model. Get it assembled $239 or go Premium for $249. Premium Assembled is $359. Installation is extra, of course. The difference between Base and Premium is that the Premium has a different enclosure type, time-of-day charging ability, remote control and an LCD display. Both models use an Arduino microcontroller, offer up to 60A 15kW of power, are Wi-Fi ready and are open source, which potentially opens the door to extensions from EMW or outside developers. The first JuiceBoxes should be ready for new customers in September.
