Wallbox

The wallbox is a private charging station dedicated to recharging an electric vehicle. It is installed by a specialised technician in a home garage, the parking lot of a block of flats, or an office building. The wallbox delivers a much stronger current than a conventional household electrical outlet. It also comes with mechanisms for load control and surge protection. The wallbox thus allows you to charge more rapidly and safely.
