JuiceBox Unaffected By Being Submerged In Ice Water

“EMotorWerks submerges its 60A / 15kW Open Source JuiceBox EVSE under 12 gallons of ice & water for 5 minutes while charging a Nissan Leaf, Challenges Schneider and Bosch to do the same!”

As you’ll witness in the video, the JuiceBox EVSE continues to charge the LEAF, despite being fully submerged in ice water.  This, in our opinion, is the ultimate waterproof-ness test for an EVSE.

At the end of the video, both Schneider and Bosch are called out to perform the Ice Bucket Challenge next.  Will Schneider and/or Bosch accept the challenge?  We’ll be sure to pass this along to each of the two EVSE makers and hopefully we’ll soon see if it’s challenge accepted or challenge ignored.

JuiceBox units start at $179 and can be ordered/configured to your liking here.

    I bought one of the DIY premium JuiceBoxes and donated it to a local nonprofit. The premium has wireless capabilities for monitoring lifetime usage. That way the non profit could see inexpensively how much the EVSE was being used. They combined that with a simple QR code with a link to their paypal account for voluntary donations. Right now the users are donating 10-1 just for the convenience of the unit since it is located near a nice park with walking trails etc. An electrical engineering friend and myself put the DIY kit together and yeah, it is that water tight.

      Hey Mark,

      Really cool stuff!
      Would you mind telling me where the unit is located/to whom it was donated?

      Thank you!
