Wallbox launches Pulsar Max in the UK



Wallbox, (NYSE:WBX), a global leader of electric vehicle (EV) charging and energy management solutions, launches Pulsar Max in the UK, their latest smart home charger designed to make everyday vehicle charging faster, easier and more stylish than ever.  

With up to 22kW of power, Pulsar Max retains the advanced performance of the Pulsar Plus model, designed to deliver top home charging speeds while introducing new tech features that you would expect from a smart-home product. 

Design-led specifically to integrate into users’ home systems - both in terms of function and style, the small and sleek design is available in six stylish, matte-finish colours - black, white, grey, green, blue and yellow so that customers can select the EV charger that matches their lifestyle. 

Pulsar Max is compatible with Wallbox energy management systems including its proprietary Eco-Smart technology which is designed to allow users to charge their EV with solar energy. By using Eco-Smart, users can choose to charge their electric cars entirely through solar from their home solar installation, or a mix of solar and grid to maximise cost and energy savings. Users may also save money and lower their impact on the environment by scheduling charging sessions through the myWallbox app. By charging during off-peak hours in terms of energy costs users can save up to £180 a year (subject to the customer’s tariff).  

Based on consumer feedback the company has also introduced a new Halo Light Standby feature to the Pulsar Max. When activated, the charger’s status light (also known as a halo light) will switch off eight seconds after an interaction, offering a more discrete option for home installations. Additional user centric features include voice control through Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant devices and a new back plate that makes installation both easier and cheaper.  

Alan McCleave, director of UK and Ireland at Wallbox, commented: “We are delighted to introduce Pulsar Max to our UK customers. We have taken user feedback to design a charger that seamlessly integrates into the users everyday lifestyle and home. 

This powerful and compact charger is designed to deliver top charging speeds, allows users to minimise and control their energy usage from their phones, and introduces a more stylish and user-friendly design, taking the quality of EV home charging to the next level.”
