New battery offers fast charging for electric cars without installation work

Juice Technology, a manufacturer of charging stations for electric vehicles, has introduced the Juice Ultra 2 battery, a new integrated battery that enables fast charging with up to 210 kW without increasing the contracted electrical power or additional installations.

Reportedly a much more cost-effective service than that offered by conventional DC fast charging stations, by continuously supplying power to the batteries, a high charging capacity is achieved despite the low grid connection power.

Within an hour, the device can be installed, connected to the grid and ready for use. For this, any conventional industrial socket (CEE32, CEE125 or CEE63) can be used. It avoids charging peaks that would otherwise generate costs that would have to be paid to the grid operator: the battery is charged continuously during the day or only at times with more affordable energy tariffs, which leads to a significant reduction in costs.

The integrated energy storage system with lithium-ion batteries is managed by a powerful energy management system (EMS), which can be operated locally or via remote access. This EMS coordinates the energy flows between the grid, the battery and the electric vehicles and ensures optimised energy distribution. This makes this charging station a fast, flexible and cost-effective option in certain scenarios, such as vehicle dealerships, transport companies or commercial fleets.

Juice Ultra 2 battery allows you to enjoy the benefits of fast DC charging with the flexibility and ease of an AC charging device.

As mentioned above, the device has a power output of up to 210 kW, which can be distributed via intelligent charge management to two CCS charging points and is available in two versions: with one battery unit and a storage capacity of 233 kWh, or with two battery units and a combined capacity of 466 kWh. The 233 kWh battery allows six standard charging processes in series which, once completed, allow the battery to be rapidly recharged.

It can be charged continuously or only at set intervals. The Juice Ultra 2 battery’s smart energy management system helps to reduce costs by avoiding peak times when energy is most expensive, as charging of the integrated battery can be carried out at times when energy rates are more affordable (at night, for example). Thus, the savings potential is considerable, as additional costs related to performance and energy provider tariffs are avoided.

The smart energy management system of the Juice Ultra 2 battery makes it possible to store and use electricity from photovoltaic systems to charge electric vehicles without the need for additional installations. The solar energy generated is first used for self-consumption in the building and the surplus energy generated after this process is used to charge the integrated battery. In this way, fleet owners can further offset their carbon footprint.
