JuiceBox Testimonials & Customer Installs
"Thanks EMotorWerks for the great and affordable product. We are now a 3 Juicebox household. One for my wife's Leaf, one for my Leaf and one for the plug-share outside the garage." -- John, February 15, 2015
"Purchased Mercedes Benz B Class 250e three weeks ago. The sale person had one and recommended JuiceBox. Did some research and decided JuiceBox Pro 40a WiFi was exactly what i wanted and best suited for the MB 250e battery. I ordered one right away but had to wait a week for our elecrtician to install a 240 plug in garage. Once the plug was installed we hooked the JuiceBox up. only took a few minutes to get the Wifi connection and mobile app going. It all installed very easily with no problems. The software app allows you to set the charging start and stop times and to also send you email notifications when the unit is plug in, disengaged, starts charging, stops charging, etc. Also, we changed our Electric billing plan from Tiers to time of Use (TOU). The super off peak starts at 10pm and ends at 8 AM. We schedule the charge to start at 10pm and is usually completed with 2 -2.5 hours. We typically start the charge with 25% of the battery charged - based on our daily use. I have looked at many other charging units and very few are at the 40amp rate. I guess if your car battery cant take the spped of the JuiceBox 40, then you could go with something less. I would highly recommend. It works perfectly and was easy to set up. The only complaint I heard from others is there are no indicator lights on the box itself. Don't need them. the mobile app works just fine to tell you what is going on. Great product." -- :), March 4, 2016
"The Juicebox works great. The quality of the components and assembly was great also. Thanks for a great alternative to the big brand EV chargers." -- R. M. K, January 25, 2015
"HELLO Electric Motor Werks :) The EVSE is amazing - works perfectly.” -- Mark P, November 24, 2014, Westfield, New Jersey
"I'm a statistics geek so this EVSE gets me giddy like a 13 year old girl at a One Direction concert. I think the layout of the online app is fantastic, especially for setting up the time-of-use scheduling. So far I'm also really impressed with the build quality (overbuilt and sturdy!) of the unit and the simplicity of operation. Nearly everything else on the market is made of crappy ABS plastic and has dorky displays that aren't comparable to an app interface. You guys did the right thing by using an app so that periodic updates can be made to improve the user experience over time. I'm looking forward to seeing what you develop over time." -- Emmanuel, September 30, 2015
“I recently ordered a Basic Juicebox with no cables. I followed all of the appropriate assembly instructions. It powered up, and everything works beautifully. I can now charge my new Mercedes B Class electric car in a fraction of the time that it took me with the dealer supplied charger. The Juicebox also cost me much less than many chargers even though your product has more capability. I love the performance of the unit. Thanks for building such a fine product.” -- Val P., September 14, 2014, Mission Viejo, California
“I ordered and received a Juice Box and it works great!” Glenn F., September 9, 2014, Laredo, Texas
“The Premium Juicebox you guys built is working very well charging my Nissan Leaf.” -- David H., August 11, 2014, Wahroonga, Australia
“My Juicebox assembled, installed and is functioning nicely.” -- Joseph A., August 3, 2014, Woodside, California
“I have received the Juicebox and its seems to work very good. If some Portuguese need some information about our Juicebox you can give my contact, i will be grateful for help you sale more Juicebox to Portugal” -- Ruben A., July 29, 2014, Barcelos, Portugal
“I wish to thank you and commend you and your team for a wonderful product. I was able to complete my journey from Atlanta, GA to St. Louis, MO (~600 miles) in under 24 hours due, in part, to your JuiceBox. Having the ability to adjust the amperage came in handy a couple of times. Thanks Again!” -- Carl D., June 17, 2014, Auburn, Georgia
“We are from Europe (Lithuania) and we have ordered JuiceBox from you and we are very happy with this product. We want to order a DC charger. We have 2012 and 2013 Nissan leaf models.” -- Kęstutis V., April 10, 2014, Marijampolė, Lithuania
“I have your level 2 juice box charger (which I love) and a 2013 LEAF with the 6.6kw charger option. Does your juicebox charge faster than the EVSEupgrade.com modification to the OEM charger? I got my OEM charger modified for using on the go, and use your juicebox at home but for some reason it seems to charge faster on the juicebox than on my EVSE Upgrade? Is this an accurate observation? I absolutely love the JuiceBox Charger and the work y'all are doing! I always refer other EV owners to your website I think Emotorwerks makes the best charger out there. ” -- Josh R., April 9, 2014, San Antonio, Texas
EmotorWerks Answer to Josh’s question: “Yes, absolutely. The EVSE upgrade tops out at ~3.8kW, while JuiceBox allows full 6.6kw charging that is limited only by the rating of your onboard charger.”
“Unit looks great. It is nice to be able to charge in a timely fashion and also be able to drive it every day. J It is a gorgeous design where form meets function. It is one hardy unit.” -- Dwayne S., April 7, 2014, Buckeye, Arizona
“I received 3 Juicebox kits the other day. I built one of them up for my neighbor down the street and ran a 240VAC circuit out to their garage. It works great. I think there is a future market for an EV charging equipment installer. If I ever lost my day-job, I would do that. Imagine how many houses DON'T have an EV charging station in the garage? That is a huge potential market. I love the continual process improvements you are making. It gets easier each time I build another kit. This is my 3rd revision of kit building. Keep up all the great work!” -- John L., Mar. 1, 2014, Kaysville, Utah
“Excellent Device! Charges my LEAF with no problems! A++++”, -- James C., Feb. 26, 2014, Hamilton, Ohio
“I'd definitely recommend JuiceBox EV Charging Station to anyone who feels comfortable with how 250V AC wiring works. The fact that it'll provide a 75% full power (non-SuperCharger) charge to a Model S is pretty amazing for its size and cost.” -- Brett, Feb. 24, 2014, Washington
“I purchaced a basic Juicebox kit from you last week. It is together and working great!” -- Bruce A., Feb. 14, 2014, Mundelein, Illinois
"I am very happy to report JuiceBox is working and is charging my Prius as I write this. Thank you for your help in getting mine working and for a great product. I am very happy to have supported your design as a backer." -- Scott A., Jan 12, 2014, North Port, Florida
"I got my JuiceBox and have already charged the car a few times. So glad I have a faster charger, and one that feels very well made! I have a thread going about the charger on the Facebook Chevrolet Volt discussion board, and hope more people will order these from you in the future.” -- Nicole M., Dec 9, 2013, Newark, California
“Received the unit and it works great! I am able to drive more electric miles, and given our cold weather here, by programming the car, the cabin is warm, via having it plugged in, when I leave. Thanks for everything and I will let other EV owners know about the advantages of 220 charging.” -- Robert W., Dec. 31, 2013, Waukesha, Wisconsin.
Mar. 6, 2014 update: "I wanted you to know I received the tax credit for the installation and cost of my juice box (30%). I am very happy with the juice box."
"Well, the Electric Motor Werks team has come through with flying colors! I received my premium kit yesterday and built it last night… it was worth the wait... that LCD and wifi is awesome!” -- Gregg S., Dec. 27, 2013, Corvallis, Oregon
"Yay! The new firmware v8.7.3 has a basic "menu" function (it even kinda works on my V8.6 boards). It is now possible to set charging current and timer functions via the fob and LCD. Now if we could just get auto-setting of the clock via the wiFly board from a NTP server we'd be all set! Looking forward to the future enhancements in V9. Thanks EMW!" -- Gregg S., Mar 29, 2014, Corvallis, Oregon
“Charging at 26.1 amps (Leaf S with QC option)…many thanks for a great product and a great customer service experience!” -- Patrick A., Dec. 18, 2013, Cumming, Georgia
“I have since ordered and built 2 of your Juicebox kits. The 2nd one was super easy since you pre-programmed the Arduino and simplified how the power cables attach (no cumbersome header). The Youtube video is awesome. That was a fantastic improvement in explaining the documentation. I especially like the trick where you make/solder your own loops on the smaller relay control wires. That’s brilliant!” -- John L., Dec. 30, 2013, Kaysville, Utah.
Mar 10, 2014 update: “I have built 5 Juicebox kits for myself and friends/family over the last 6 months. I love how well they operate, allow such fast charging and they cost so little money. Each time I receive a new kit they have made some sort of process improvement. They are easy to build and in my experience, work flawlessly. You can't beat the price. Get one, you won't be disappointed.”
“I plugged it in and presto - charged up my daily drive in about 15 minutes... wow… I'm very impressed to know that I have a faster charger than the public ones in town!!” -- Phil K., Nov 1, 2013, Regina, Canada
"I want to send you and your team a thank you for the JuiceBox kit. I built it yesterday and made my first charge of my Ford Focus EV this afternoon. Nice work!" -- Jack M., Dec 14, 2013, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
“I finished installing it and it works great. You can add Ford CMAX Energi to your list of vehicles.” -- Tony K., Dec 14, 2013, Denver, Colorado
“…built with no problems, and charging my C-Max from a 14-30R socket” -- Alan S., Dec. 28, 2013, Morgan Hill, California
“Just finished building the base kit. Works great…..a fantastic, “boring”, build (Boring is good... large electrical flashes, heat, smoke, and arcs are NOT the good kind of excitement.)” -- Pete W., Nov 5, 2013, Olympia, Washington
“wow.... we are soooo impressed with these.. we saw one that you sold to a customer of ours in Texas.. (assembled)...thanks for ALL that you all do to keep this EV movement going forward !!!” -- Audrey, Nov 8, 2013, Port Saint Lucie, Florida
“…you all rock at Electric Motor Werks for making this kit…” -- Matthew.D., Oct 17, 2013, Gardena, California
“You built THE charger for the EV Industry, congratulations.” -- Hector R., Nov 3, 2013, Mexico
"This charger works like a champ…I am very pleased with it, from the cost to the future capabilities to the sturdy feel.” -- Joel G, Dec. 20, 2013, La Center, Washington
“I just wanted to say how thrilled I am about receiving the basic unit Juicebox! I plugged it in and it has charged for about a week without incident on my Chevy Volt.” -- Mark B., Nov 11, 2013, Newbury Park, California
“JB works great on my 2013 Nissan Leaf. I may even be purchasing more for some friends who may need one. Thank you for this!” -- Ed S., Nov 12, 2013, Kapolei, Hawaii
“I just finished assembling and installing my Juice box. I got everything together and it works great!! Great product. Glad you found me. Backing you was well worth it. Good luck.” -- Dexter W., Kickstarter backer, Nov 16, 2013, Concord, Massachusetts
“I received my order (the JuiceBox with cords) yesterday. It came just as the electrician was finishing up the job of putting 240v in my garage. Everything is working great. Thank you again for your assistance and guidance with this EV "stuff". It was all new to me. I'll be spreading the good word about your company and products.” -- Tom J., Nov 22, 2013, Morgan Hill, California
“Hi Valery, you are a genius :) just received the charger and am extremely pleased by the quality of parts.” -- Jean Philippe J., Nov 28, 2013, Compton, Canada
“2 months now and I have charged my Volt everyday (sometimes twice) with the JuiceBox. It seems to be working great. I did have one instance of needing to power cycle the unit when it stopped working, but, other than that, I have been very pleased.” -- Casey F., Kickstarter backer, Dec 2, 2013, Milford, Ohio
“Charging my Volt 2.5 times faster on 240, no problems at all with my base Juicebox. Big, Big savings for 240v charging over commercial versions, thanks for creating this great product.” -- Robert G, Kickstarter backer, Dec. 5, 2013, Glendale, Arizona
"I want to thank you all once again for your help, you have been awesome the whole way through. I cannot recommend your products and services highly enough. I wish more companies operated like this one. Thanks again." -- Cliff Sword, Bay City, Michigan, where it was -27' last night and the charger did great!
"Just a note of thanks for the JuiceBox Premium [Pro Plus] unit. I installed it myself, as you can see. The unit is built like a brick house. As you can see in the picture [to the right], it is installed outside, in the weather, and I use it daily. I tilted the bottom forward by two degrees so there would be no liquid accumulation in the inside bottom, something the do-it-yourselfers should consider.
Works really great, very good quality. Keeps track of charge volumes, the remote works well. I highly recommend it, great value!" -- Michael Overturf, Feb 16, 2015, Washington DC
[Picture of neat installation is on the right ---> ]
"I just wanted to send a note about how wonderfully pleased I am with your product. It appears to function at such an efficient level that I can charge at my home nearly twice as fast as the level 2 chargers scattered about town. I am guessing it has to do with the dedicated breaker, or maybe it is just because the JuiceBox is awesome! It works flawlessly and I can fully charge in about 3.5 hours from near 0. So, please pass this along. Wonderful customer service from you and your company, and a product that delivers just as promised, if not better. I have not had to pay for a charge, other than the pennies added to my electricity bill, since I installed it. " -- Dallas W Humphrey, CEO of Awesome, Mar 21, 2015, Arizona
"Somewhat suprising, but the JuiceBox is completely silent. I like that the JB itself sits freely in the wall mounting clamp so it can be easily removed to take on a journey with me if needed. The charger that came with the vehicle is now in a dry bag in the frunk for emergencies." -- Dwayne Sinclair

"Hi! Just wanted to say thanks for a good product! Plugged it and and click clack it works - no fuzz." -- Jan Andersen, Port Captain, Norden Tankers and Bulkers USA, ME, Apr 24, 2015
"I am using the JuiceBox now for charging my 2015 B-class! It works great and provides a full 10kW to my car." -- Yoron Oren-Pines, San Jose, CA, Apr 26, 2015
"Received my Juicebox 40 Classic this week and installed it Saturday morning. Had to get a down converter plug to go from the 14-50 to a 6-20. Attached everything. Powered it up. Started charging. Works like a champ. Thanks for your good work. Can’t wait ‘til next year when, I hope, I can get a Tesla hooked to this with a new 50 amp outlet installed." -- Bob Mercer, Ram Technical Support, LLC, May 17, 2015
"Just wanted to say Thanks. The JuiceBox Pro 40 works great! I can’t wait to see updated features and data on both the Android App and the Web app. It would be great to get notifications via my Smartphone from the App itself about the Charging stats, but I am sure you are already working on that. :)" -- Chris Scahill, May 29, 2015
"I was ecstatic to get my WattBox hooked up and see data for the first time on my old AeroVironment. It's like a blind person seeing for the first time!" -- KK, RE the WattBox
