Update: Alpha Smart Charger Beta Testers
When United Chargers debuted its new, state-of-the-art Alpha smart charger, the company announced it would be selecting Beta testers from those pre-ordering the charger. Beta tester selection has begun and those being offered the opportunity will be receiving emails with questions and legal documents to sign in order to be onboarded. Those legal documents, however, do not prohibit Beta testers from discussing the Alpha publicly.
