Supernova 180 combines cutting-edge technology with an award-winning design to revolutionize the charging experience for electric vehicle owners. Tailored to North American needs, the charger is the latest generation of Wallbox’s DCFC, Supernova, which launched in Europe in 2022. Since its launch, Wallbox has sold over 2,000 Supernova globally, contributing to over 150,000 charging sessions, with industry leading reliability and uptime.

Supernova 180 can deliver up to 180 kW of charging power, meaning it can add 100 miles of range in under 10 minutes.

Production of Wallbox’s latest fast charger is expected to begin this month.

High Power, Small Footprint

Supernova has been designed to have a high Power to Dimension ratio to optimize real estate. Supernova will support up to 180 kW of charging power, meaning it can add 100 miles of range in under 10 minutes.* Its reduced footprint opens up more sites to fast charging opportunities, including locations with limited space and power such as gas stations, car dealerships, and shopping malls.

Supernova’s innovative six module design allows for versatile deployment across various locations, making it an ideal choice for public charging infrastructure. This design concept enables easy, safe and cheaper installation, which can be safely managed with either a forklift or crane. In addition, Supernova 180 offers unparalleled service access, with entry points on all four vertical sides of the charger.

Innovative modular design for improved performance

Supernova 180 unique design which incorporates six 30kW power modules solves one of the biggest pain points of the EV market, uptime. In the unlikely event that one of the six modules fails, Supernova 180 will continue to charge an EV using the remaining five modules, only slightly reducing the power output.

Wallbox uses a flexible module system for its DC fast chargers to ensure they can be upgraded easily as the EV market matures, and driver needs change. While most EVs on the market today have limited charging capacity, next generation EVs will increasingly have the capacity to charge at up to 180kW. Supernova 180 ensures that EV charging sites can be seamlessly upgraded from 60 kW to 120 kW or a staggering 180 kW, to meet market and site demands. Allowing for future power upgrades ensures EV sites are future-proofed, while reducing upfront investment during their initial rollout.

Award winning design

Supernova 180 features the same body-form as Supernova which has received prestigious design accolades such as the Good Design and the IF Design Award 2022 for its forward-looking design.

Following the principles of other Wallbox products, it has a subtle and minimalist design that will integrate discreetly into public spaces. With a robust construction and a NEMA 3R and IK10 rating to withstand the needs of public infrastructure, no structural features have been compromised in maintaining an sleek appearance.

Intelligent power management for simultaneous charging:

Each Supernova 180 unit is able to charge two EVs simultaneously, commonly referred to as split charging. Its intelligent power redistribution ensures the most efficient use of the available energy, maximizing the charger's utility and ROI while enhancing the overall charging experience.

Improved user experience:

Supernova features a number of physical features for improved customer experience including effortless cable handling through its cable management system; numerous payment options, including credit card and RFID; an interactive light system; and a robust 10'' sunlight-readable color screen, with an IK10 rating to ensure users can interact with a reliable and easy to read screen. The charger also boasts an intuitive user interface, ensuring the charging experience is user centric and intuitive for an enhanced overall experience.

Supernova 180 has broad EV compatibility and will be available with both CCS1 and NACS connectors over the course of 2024.

Wallbox guarantees peace of mind with its DC Fast Charging solution, backed by the Wallbox Care Program. This worry-free service offers reduced maintenance costs, corrective maintenance, and rapid issue resolution through tailored service levels, addressing diverse customer needs and ensuring minimal downtime.
