The automotive supplier Bosch makes the loading of e-car more comfortable. The new flexible charging cable with integrated control and safety technology also comes on the 230 volt socket without the otherwise conventional “charging tile” – as the bulky in-cable control box is called in colloquially. This is from a communication of the company. Accordingly, the flexible Smart Charging Cable weighs, which celebrates world premiere at the IAA Mobility 2021, under three kilograms and thus average 40 percent less than conventional charging cables with control box.
According to Bosch, however, the high-tech cable not only saves weight, but also space in the trunk. Because thanks to the adapter for type 2 and household plugs, there is no longer a second cable to be flexible at home or on the road to a charging station stream. “With the universal charging cable, Bosch makes the electromobility even more customer-friendly,” says Dr. Uwe Kackstatter, Chairman of the PowerTrain Solutions division. “Our goal is to make the new cable for standard equipment of electric vehicles.”Bosch is expected to distribute it from mid-2022 to both vehicle manufacturers and end customers.
In order to be able to integrate the control and safety technology in the compact cable connectors, Bosch developers have significantly reduced the electronics compared to previous applications in control boxes, it says. In addition, it was possible to bring the new charging cable within 18 months to market maturity.
With the flexible Smart Charging Cable, Bosch expands its portfolio in electromobility. Also loading services or the battery management service are included. In addition, Bosch has entered the factory equipment for battery production.

2 thoughts on “Bosch charging cable: conclusion with the annoying “brick””
Although I do not know if the majority of electric car drivers can enjoy optimizing the 230V store, I have never needed that and drive on long-hauls for some time. But at least they are now dealing with the topic of electromobility and no longer with the defense.
And no word about the price.
Juice Booster 2 or was it 3, so the last version, is already pretty small. Bosch remained only left to integrate that directly into the plug. If JB takes over more than 1000 euros, Bosch, which is known for bargains prices, will probably be clear about it. That alone disqualifies the product already for me. My 11kW Mennekes Type2 cable has cost me 80 euros with TuV certificate (not taught yourself) ..
That does not stand in relations, even not in relation, how much electricity I get it.
