J+ BOOSTER 2 – Features and Benefits:

  1. Socket Compatibility: The versatile J+ BOOSTER 2 charging station enables EVs to charge from any conventional household or industrial socket-outlet throughout North America.
  2. Power Input: The power input options cover all supply current variants, either 120 V or 240 V, and from 6 to 40 amps.
  3. NEMA Compliant: This charging device offers six available adapters compliant with the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standards (NEMA 5-15, NEMA 5-20, NEMA TT-30, NEMA 6-50, NEMA 14-50 and NEMA 6-15), and all are equipped for automatic detection of socket input current. The NEMA 5-15, NEMA 6-15, and NEMA 5-20 adapter plugs are also fitted with the J+ CELSIUS temperature monitoring system.  
  4. Ruggedized Durability: The in-cable control box is waterproof and dustproof (to protection rating IP 67), can be used within an ambient temperature range of -22°F to 122°F (-30°C to 50°C), and is driveover-resistant to wheel loads of up to 6,600 lbs. (3 metric tons).
  5. Safety: The J+ CELSIUS temperature sensor installed directly at the plug pins protects socket-outlets against overheating. The residual current device integrated into the J+ BOOSTER 2 for fault current protection eliminates the need to install any expensive DC residual current device in the home – saving users considerable extra expense.
  6. Certified according to UL standards: All electrical devices in the United States and Canada must be safety-certified in accordance with specified national requirements. One authorized testing and certification company is ETL Intertek (Germany). They test products, components, materials and systems according to UL standards to determine whether they meet specific standards. J+ BOOSTER 2 has been certified according to UL standards and bears the certification mark UL2594 for electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) as well as UL2231-1 and -2 for personnel protection for EVSE in full compliance with the two international standards IEC 62196 and IEC 61851-1 and the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive.
