Grab, Pop, Plug!

Navigation is not a problem. The charging stations are very visible with it’s easy-to-spot electric blue branding in the mall parking areas. Easy-peasy simple user friendly-instructions: “Grab, Pop, Plug!” are also provided.

Grab the cable from the Wallbox and extend to the car, pop open the charging port, plug the charger in, and wait for the white light to turn green to indicate that the vehicle is charging. To unplug, simply wait for the green light to turn back to white, unplug the charger from the port, and return the cable to the Wallbox.

The Wallbox Pulsar Plus 7.4KW AC chargers support the following e-Vehicle brands: Audi, BMW, Fiat, Ford, GMC, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Volkswagen, and Hyundai, among others.
