eMotorWerks Announces Industry's First Low-Cost, WiFi-Enabled Portable EV Charging Cord and Most Powerful Level 2 Charging Station
Industry-first WiFi-enabled JuiceCord charges at 20 amps, is portable, and priced affordably at $449; new JuiceBox Pro 75 can charge at rates up to 18 kW and 75 amps, matching the power draw from high-end EVs while future proofing EVSE purchases.
SAN CARLOS, Calif., April 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- eMotorWerks, the leading provider of intelligent and connected smart-grid charging hardware and cloud solutions for electric vehicle (EV) drivers, EV manufacturers, and EV supply equipment (EVSE) fleet operators, today announced the expansion of its popular JuiceNet®-enabled line of electric vehicle charging stations, unveiling the new 5 kilowatt (kW) JuiceCordTM and 18 kW JuiceBoxTM Pro 75. Both products are now available for order in the company's web store at www.emotorwerks.com.
Continuing the company's focus on providing highly affordable Internet-of-Load solutions with which customers can earn ongoing payments for smart-grid charging, JuiceCord is the first WiFi-connected EVSE travel cord on the market. Delivered in a portable, lightweight, and durable form factor and priced at $449, JuiceCord's 20 amp, 5 kW power output is considerably higher than existing, non-connected travel cords, thus offering industry-first connectivity, maximum portability, and lowest cost per kilowatt. As with all JuiceNet devices, JuiceCord includes a free iOS or Android mobile app for anytime, anywhere control, programmability for grid emissions reductions and time of use (ToU) charging that saves drivers money. A number of input adapters are available to connect JuiceCord to any power source - 120V or 240V.
JuiceCord is available worldwide and has already been well received by eMotorWerks international distributors: "We are seeing a rapid uptake in EV sales worldwide - such as the Mitsubishi Outlander, BMW i3, Volvo XC90, Renault Zoe & Kangoo and the well established Nissan LEAF and used Japanese imports here in New Zealand. We needed a viable portable charging solution for these vehicles and the eMotorWerks' new JuiceCord fits the bill perfectly - affordable, compact, and lightweight. The fact that it's WiFi connected really sets it apart from the competition", says Grant Crawshay, Technical Director of JuicePoint, New Zealand.
The company also announced JuicePlug™ - a patent-pending, universal EVSE adapter that manages the time and rate of charging and converts any existing "dumb EVSE" into a smart one, with app and web-based control. Early purchasers can get the product at reduced cost, and receive free JuicePlug promotional items by pre-ordering on KickStarter in the next 24 hours. This new product allows eMotorWerks to offer smart EV charging to every single EV owner and extend the opportunity to earn ongoing rewards for EV charging to everyone.

Expanding the best-selling JuiceBox series of EVSEs already sold to nearly 9,000 customers worldwide, the new JuiceBox Pro 75 allows drivers to charge any current EV on the market at its full level 2 charging rate. With more and more EVs being released with higher power electronics to match continually-increasing battery capacities, customers are looking for peace of mind that their current EVSE solution will serve them in the future. JuiceBox Pro 75 was designed for those customers. Priced at $999, with a limited-time introductory price of $899, the Pro 75 is a high-power solution that also future-proofs EVSE purchases.
Through the company's smart-grid EV charging network - which includes JuiceNetTM-enabled Clipper Creek stations, the company's own JuiceBox Pro EVSEs, and JuicePlug on Kickstarter at www.bitly.com/juiceplug - eMotorWerks has access to the widest network of flexible EV charging load capacity in the world. Access to such capacity helps the power industry better address increasing challenges in balancing local and regional grid loads with its generation assets, thus preparing for expanded renewable energy generation and the mass adoption of electric vehicles.
"JuiceCord is a special new product that brings the benefits of WiFi connectivity, portability, and power to our customers. We worked hard to keep it affordable while also having it work with our rewards program that pays drivers to charge.", says says Valery Miftakhov, Founder of eMotorWerks, "...and our JuiceBox Pro 75 is unique to the industry, offering highest level 2 power available, future-proof ease of mind, and all the benefits of smart-grid charging."
All three products - JuicePlug, JuiceCord and JuiceBox Pro - are eligible for automated participation in the company's JuicePointsTM cash rewards program that pays drivers for smart-grid EV charging. Learn more or sign up for JuicePoints.
