Dear Fellow EV Enthusiast!
Congratulations on purchasing the 15kW 60A Open Source JuiceBox Kit!
By assembling this device yourself, you will understand how EV charging systems work and will enjoy your EV much more – knowing that you built your charging ‘infrastructure’ yourself!
You will also learn a good bit about open-source hardware - the exciting revolution that is happening in the hardware world today. By moving power to make things from big corporations to people like you, we all will innovate faster and make things better for all to enjoy!
Finally, you will be able to easily adapt the JuiceBox to your liking – all the designs are completely open source and the latest versions are always available from Electric Motor Werks. Contact us anytime at JBfirstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Thank you again for joining us on this journey to more sustainable and fun transportation!
A special thank you goes to all our KickStarter backers! Without you, this product would not exist. If you are not our KickStarter backer, check out our original KS campaign here - it has a lot of good info on the product, our philosophy and what we are trying to do.
