Wallbox Pulsar Plus – the Smart Home Charge view

The charger

The Wallbox Pulsar Plus has a lot going for it. It’s compact at just 166mm by 163mm, it looks neat and now it doesn’t even need an earth rod thanks to built-in open PEN protection.

At the old price point, the Pulsar Plus used to be a tougher sell but the cost has since come down dramatically. In fact, the new lower price makes this one of the most compelling charge point offerings for me.

Some may find the plastic finish a little disappointing, but the build quality is excellent. In addition, the glossy finish and lighting on the device make it the best-looking charger in this price bracket.

It’s also only available as a tethered option, but this shouldn’t be an issue considering most EV drivers opt for tethered anyway. To learn more about the pros and cons of tethered vs untethered chargers, take a look at this guide and video.

The fact it doesn’t need an earth rod is a bonus – that keeps the install cost lower and the final result neater.

The Wallbox app

But it’s the myWallbox app that truly makes the Pulsar Plus (and any Wallbox product) stand out, especially at this price point. Most charging apps do the job of scheduling and real-time monitoring, but few make it as easy as Wallbox.

Bold colours and large buttons make it easy to navigate around the app. This makes setting up a charge schedule easy too. Diehard EV fans may find the lack of advanced options frustrating, but in all honesty most people do not care about clever functions or features – they just want the charger and app to work and be simple to operate.

That’s exactly what you get with the Wallbox Pulsar Plus.
