JuiceBar, a commercial EV charger manufacturer based in Connecticut, entered the home charging market today with the release of a 48-amp charger that it calls the “Cheetah.”
Amps measure the speed at which a car charges, making the Cheetah one of the fastest chargers on the home market.
“Our new home charger combines the speed and unparalleled reliability of our commercial chargers with a smart interface that will impress every EV driver,” said JuiceBar CEO Paul Vosper.
Vosper said that the Cheetah will be “Made in the USA, just like our commercial chargers.”
The Cheetah will be compatible with all EV models. The home version will be available in 32, 40, and 48-amp configurations and will include dual safety relays, a smart mobile app, and a 3-year warranty. Options include an extra-long 25-foot cord and a cord retractor.
“EV infrastructure is a national priority,” added Vosper. “Instead of meeting our goals with flimsy, foreign-built chargers, we intend to achieve them with US-made products that support American jobs.”
Amy Harris, JuiceBar’s Chief Marketing Officer, said that the company will soon be announcing plans to offer customers an option to make their EVs 100% carbon neutral through the purchase of certified renewable energy credits that offset the cars’ carbon footprint.
