The JUICE BOOSTER 3 air is the first wave in a completely new family of products. It's smaller, lighter, smarter and better connected than other on-the-go charging stations, while still meeting all the requirements for a conventional wall-mounted charging station for home use.

"Do I want mobile or stationary charging?" – a common question for those who are new to the world of electromobility. Experienced electric drivers, on the other hand, take advantage of the entire spectrum of charging solutions: smart, fully networked wall boxes at home and at their destination, DC chargers during long journeys, and flexible mobile chargers for long stopovers or at a vacation home. With the JUICE BOOSTER 3 air, you no longer need to compromise. This mobile device represents a quantum leap forwards, easily transforming from portable all-rounder to smart wall box – and in the most compact design on the market.

Charging at Home
Once your daily commute is finished, you take the type 2 plug out of the wall mount and plug it into your car's charging port. You then activate the charging process by conveniently tapping your charge card or RFID key fob on the sensor integrated in the charging coupler. This identifies you as the user and protects against power theft. And with a lock that allows you to secure the device in its holder, the BOOSTER 3 air is the perfect device for use as a stationary charging station in semi-public spaces or easily accessible private spaces, such as carports or parking garages in apartment buildings.

While your car is charging, you can manually adjust the charging power in steps by pressing a single button directly on the device. But what's even more impressive is that the charging process can be controlled remotely, using the special e-mobility app j+ pilot. Using your phone or tablet, you can pause or throttle charging from the comfort of your sofa, and you can even set a schedule, for example to charge your battery at night when energy is cheaper. If several cars are using the same household connection, the maximum power available to each is dynamically distributed among all vehicles in a previously defined group of up to ten units.

Once a vehicle is fully charged or is disconnected from the grid, this free charging power is diverted to the other vehicles. To avoid overloading your household connection, you can use the app to predefine the maximum amount of power that can be used for charging. So even if several guests with electric cars show up to your party, they can all charge their vehicles at the same time without hesitation – all while the soup simmers on the stove, the roast stews in the oven, the dishwasher runs and the AC keeps the house nice and cool.

The smartJUICE charging management system is already included in the JUICE BOOSTER 3 air and works without any additional hardware. The only requirement is that all devices must be on the same Wi-Fi network. Our motto is: Connect it, unlock it, charge it and forget it!

Charging on the Road
Who doesn't love a good road trip – back roads, beautiful scenery, not to mention a more interesting driving experience? The only downside is the public charging infrastructure, which often still falls short of expectations. In the Wallachian Plain or the High Pyrenees, for example, rapid-charging stations are still hard to come by. If you want to enjoy tomme noire and jambon noir while taking in the stunning scenery along the Grand Cru – and you want to travel the next day with a fully charged battery – then we recommend keeping a JUICE BOOSTER 3 air in your trunk (or your 'frunk'). Simply plug it into a household socket or campsite hook-up – with the right adapter, of course – and the mobile wall box will draw enough power for the onward journey. You don't have to worry about the condition of the connection, since the BOOSTER 3 air has all the necessary safety features and will detect even the smallest fault. For example, it pauses the charging process if the household socket starts to overheat, and it switches off completely if the connection is incorrectly wired, as a safety precaution.

Concerns about how the charging energy is billed are also a thing of the past: the j+ pilot app neatly lists all the charging data, which are billed at the current kilowatt price. This universal app also shows the charging history and various trip data, which makes it easy to estimate how long you can travel before the next charge. With the JUICE BOOSTER 3 air, you can feel secure even in areas where the public charging network is sparse, and you can conveniently plan your next charging stop. After all, power sources are available everywhere. For environmentally conscious long-distance travellers, though, a concern is having to rely on electricity generated in a nuclear or gas-fired power plant. But just because you're on the road doesn't mean you have to sacrifice guaranteed sustainable green electricity. That's because the j+ pilot app enables you to book simultaneously generated natural energy from JUICE POWER from any power source.

A Variety of Uses
Just as the internet once made the leap from home computer to the smartphone, thus providing a greater variety of applications and networked services, the JUICE BOOSTER 3 air opens up a wealth of new possibilities by making the functions of a smart stationary charger available at any location. As the first mobile device in the j+ series, the JUICE BOOSTER 3 air can easily be updated over the air. And users won't have to worry about how many charging points they'll need in the future, because the BOOSTER 3 air can be easily expanded to include additional charging units.

In the professional world, too, the provision of charging options is increasingly seen as a desirable perk. Restaurants and hotels can keep their initial costs low by offering their guests mobile chargers instead of permanently installed charging stations (or in addition to such stations). Small companies can provide their employees and visitors with the JUICE BOOSTER 3 air for use as a mobile wall box, which keeps the questions of access and follow-up costs firmly within their control. And staff who work in the field can quickly recharge at the customer's premises during a site visit, and then have the energy costs reimbursed.

As a whole, the JUICE BOOSTER 3 air makes the electric car a lot more flexible, and it is blurring the boundaries between transport and consumer electronics. By building bridges to electricity providers and enabling smart connections with other devices, it is opening up entirely new possibilities for both individual and social mobility, and taking both to the next level.
