Anyone use Juicebox 40a EVSE?

Thu May 11, 2017 9:04 pm

I just got a 2017 S with quick charger package and had my electrician install a NEMA 14-50 outlet on my garage wall in anticipation of getting a level 2 EVSE. Seems like juicebox is priced right, but curious if anyone has it or can compare it to anything else.

Can't really compare it to anything but ours works great. We also have the Nema 14-50. Completely wifi controlled and future proofed if the next leaf has a bigger charger. Happy with ours. It charges both our EV's.

I have a few at work. They work well with a fleet.We have charged off a generator with a ground led, to get a car back to the yard. lots to add on if you want. Good customer service. Works well, the two units at my yard charge 6 cars a day, every day with no problems...

Yes, I am another happy customer. Love the WiFi connectivity and reporting from it. So glad I got this as I can charge my Tesla at the faster rate supported by Tesla (though it is primarily used to charge the Leaf).

Didn't realize the price of the JuiceBox 40 Pro had dropped down to $600, that is a great deal for a "smart" Wi-Fi enabled EVSE!

I have the new juicebox 40 pro and it works really well and the case looks great. I love the wifi option on my iPhone.

I agree, the new Black & Gold case is a real improvement on the rather utilitarian grey aluminum case it replaced. I have an even older Juicebox, the Premium with a nice black anodized finish, still working after all these years. Even though my Premium lacks WiFi what I like about is it's tiny RF remote to adjust things like output current, etc. AFAIK the only way to adjust the new Juiceboxes is with a smartphone.

The only way to adjust it OR get any status information. It's kind of unique, AFAIK, in not even having basic LED indicators. But I guess that makes it easier for them to do this:

I could say that the network status info more than makes up for it, but really, I still want my blinkenlights. :) I don't think I could cope with the non-"Pro" JuiceBox.

another happy 40 pro owner here. no problems, rock solid. 2.4GHz wifi is the only minor complaint i could come up with.
