FWIW, I've got the original EU version of this and carry it with me everywhere in my frunk. I consider it my "emergency charge anywhere" kit.

Really enjoying my JB 2 since 3+ years already.
Only shame is that I cannot control it for automated charging times..
The Taycan charging profiles / timers are not always performing the way I want them to.

Your JuiceCharger EASY 1 features all things necessary for a good interface.. Raspberry Pi, some way to control the charge Speed, LAN port, ....

If you need any help feel free to DM me. I do not work with the EU products, but I will do my best to get you in touch with someone at our HQ who can help you.

This is exactly what I bought with the offer from Porsche for an alternate EVSE while they address the PMCC issues. So far I'm thrilled with the J+. Extremely well built, feature rich, and much more portable than the Porsche 'mobile' option.

I know I'm being nit-picky (and I do like the product albeit def on the upper end re cost), but the 'exclusive' to Porsche owners 10% discount not quite accurate as apparently any first time buyer has this offer :) - correct?

Okay, I will not comment further on "the German version made in China and the US J+ labeled made in Germany" 😂

I know it might seem a bit amusing, but there’s a solid business reason for this setup. Due to U.S. import tax codes, it’s actually more cost-effective to manufacture the J+ BOOSTER 2 in Germany rather than in China and import it to the U.S. So, our U.S. customers benefit from high-quality German manufacturing. 😊

Just a little food for thought: While they share a similar name, the J+ BOOSTER 2 is distinct from the Juice BOOSTER 2. Our model is specifically designed for the US/North American power grid, offering different features and functionalities tailored to local requirements.
