CES 2022 brings together a diverse world of pioneering and innovative industries. The Consumer Electronic Show 2022 will take place in Las Vegas from January 5-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and Wallbox has the pleasure to announce its presence at CES 2022.
As part of the CES® Unveiled event on January 3rd, we will be showcasing our latest products and trends, which include the launch of the new “Quasar 2” – a next-generation bidirectional home charger. The presentation will be hosted by Douglas Alfaro, the General Manager of Wallbox North America in a Q&A session.
America’s Newest Bidirectional Charger
Wallbox has designed a next generation bidirectional charger, Quasar 2, with advanced technology. Bidirectional charging means it can be used to charge and discharge electric vehicles to power your home or give power back to the grid.
Quasar 2, retains the advanced features and functionality of the previous Quasar with the addition of a blackout mode, a feature that allows you to use your electric vehicle as an emergency generator in event of a power shortage.
Quasar 2 can supply power for a home for an average of 3 days depending on the car battery and energy consumption. Quasar 2 is part of the evolution in sustainable energy systems. It allows you to consume energy in a smarter and more efficient way to help you lower the cost of your power bills.
Douglas Alfaro, the General Manager of Wallbox North America said that “The average American experienced more than eight hours of power interruption in 2020. Whether it’s caused by an earthquake, hurricane, wildfire or simply related to an overload on the power grid, a power outage can have a detrimental impact on homeowners that can last for hours or even days. With blackout mode, we are able to offer EV owners some relief by helping mitigate the impact of a major energy disruption in the home.”
A better, user friendly and powerful performance
Quasar 2 has been designed to be compatible with existing American infrastructure to ensure optimal efficiency. It can provide up to 11.5kW/48 Amp of power for charging and discharging, making it even more powerful than the original Quasar. Quasar 2 comes with CCS compatibility and connects to the myWallbox app through Wifi, Bluetooth, Ethernet, or 4G.
Wallbox will also showcase some of its many hardware and software solutions for the home, business, and public sectors, at the Consumer Electronic Show 2022. For example:
