Juice Booster 2 from dealer

Post by phila » Thu Apr 11, 2019 2:48 pm

I received an SMS from my dealership a couple days ago stating that my new charging cable was ready for pickup. Since I already received the normal EVSE and Type2 cable during initial delivery I figured it was simply an additional Type2 cable. I walk into the dealership and was given a large box containing a Juice Booster 2 together with the red 400V , blue 230V and the standard shuko adapters, retail value 1000€! This was unexpected but perfect timing as I just recently received a wall mounted charge box which is supposed to get installed tomorrow through a certified electrician. I can now return this charge box which i paid for and simply use this juicebooster 2 in my garage and on the road as its basically is a mobile charging unit.

Has anyone else received this from their dealer?

No , but I bought one for 1000€ as you said and I use it as a mobile charging unit (since I could not install a wall box )

Phila,

Could you share which dealer you are dealing with?
I am also residing in Norway and this sounds interesting enough to pursue from my side.

Thanks.

I also would like to know this. The webpage stated I was getting an extra plug to use with industrial contacts, but I haven’t received this from dealer.

The JLR dealer in Sola called Hellestø.

Really nice too as connect this thing against a 400V (red) plug and I got around 10% consistently so that would be a full 32A. However I now have the EVSE (Shuko) that came with original delivery, the Type2 cable and now this Juicebooster so lots of chargers. Im simply assuming this is Jaguars answer to Tesla as Teslas come with such industrial adapters upon delivery in certain countries i believe so good on Jaguar to step up here, but lets hope all receive this and not just a few.

On another note i ended up installing my wallbox anyway and opted against installing an industrial contact in my garage. The cabling and all needed to be done anyway and with my wallbox I have far better overview of charging and can manage the charge to avoid the peaks and only charge during low electricity costs. Plus i get a nice overview of the actual accrued charging costs right on my phone which is something i like to have. I understand the InControl app could likely have achieved the same thing but have heard from others that this is a buggy feature still. Plus at 6500nok / 680€ (Easee) it wasnt the most expensive one either but seems to be really smart and full of nice features.

Did you ask about the missing industry plug?
According to the web page, Norwegian customers are suppose to get a industry plug adapter. But I haven’t got any yet. Dealer is still silent about this (won’t answer the mail about it)

No i didnt ask about anything, I just received an SMS from the dealer last week stating my new charging cable is ready to be picked up at the dealer. I had no idea about anything, havent been on the forums in a while either and was nicely surprised to receive a JuiceBooster2. I was actually looking into buying one of these at one point as well. Im assuming they are being rolled out to customers according to delivery date. I got my IPace in December but the car has been registered since October.

Wow, your dealer in Sola is super helpful, and really is working to get satisfied customers. My dealer is pulling all the brakes.
I am now however in dialogue with my dealer.

Is there any chance you could take a picture of your received JuiceBooster 2?

The web page in Norwegian clearly says we are suppose to get a charging cable with a industrial adapter plug.

My dealer said to me that this was an removed text from a old web page, removed over a year ago.
... I can however read the text right now, from Jaguar web page today.. so I’m not sure what my dealer is messing with, or why he is claiming this false statements.

Thanks Phila,
Same as my dealer then. Will pay them a visit one of these days and hear If they are inclined to offer me one....
Got my car late october, so I am not sure If date of registration has something to do with this.
