Allison interviews Douglas Alfaro from Wallbox about their chargers for electric vehicles. Douglas first describes the Pulsar Plus, Wallbox’s most compact and popular EV charger. The Pulsar Plus is a smart charger with WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity and is suitable for every plug-in vehicle. You can control and monitor Pulsar Plus functions through a mobile app. It supports a 40 amp circuit and can provide up to 9.6 kW output. The Pulsar Plus can maximize energy use between the charger and your home and it supports Power Sharing between other Wallbox chargers. Their more advanced charger is the Quasar Bidirectional Charger for your home. It has the unique feature of both being able to charge your EV and also provide charge from your EV battery to your home. So you can use your car as an energy resource in the event you lose power on the grid or to reduce your grid power demands during peak periods. This functionality will depend on your electric company’s service restrictions. Wallbox chargers are currently only available in Europe but Pulsar Plus and Quasar will be launched in the U.S. in mid-2020 and end-2020, respectively. The setting is CES Unveiled at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.
