Electric Motor Werks announced its 30-day fundraising campaign going live on http://www.KickStarter.com , the world’s leading crowdfunding site, on June 24, 2013, at 1.00 pm Pacific Time.
This crowd funding campaign aims to raise $25.000 to set up mass production of the Open Source Level 2 EV charging station (EVSE) - EMotorWerks JuiceBox.
EMotorWerks Juicebox is a new product from the EV Conversion company Electric Motor Werks, Inc. This is the first time the company is expanding beyond the EV Conversion market and aims to introduce the product targeted at all EV owners.
Targeted to be completely open source design, EMotorWerks JuiceBox will allow production EV owners to charge their vehicles at home 5 times faster than they could before with the factory-supplied charging adapters (power generally limited by the on-vehicle charger and home supply, NOT EMotorWerks JuiceBox. The JuiceBox can deliver up to 15kW of AC power depending on configuration). EMotorWerks JuiceBox can be connected to either 120V outlet or 240V outlet (such as a dryer outlet). Full power rating will be achieved while connected to a 240V outlet
The company has a number of working prototypes in the field already and is now looking to scale production.
EMotorWerks supporters in this crowdfunding campaign will receive handsome rewards: from basic kits to fully assembled charging stations depending on the amount contributed.
The pricing is set to start from $99 plus shipping for the DIY charging station kit. This makes EMotorWerks JuiceBox charging solution 8 times cheaper than the lowest-cost currently available charging stations (EVSE).
