DEFA Power is the charging station of the year 2023 and wins ‘best in test’
Since the charging station DEFA Power was released to the market in May this year, it has been praised by both industry press and electric vehicle enthusiasts. For instance, Swedish Testvinnarna has named DEFA Power the ‘Charging Station of the Year 2023,’ and the website M3 has given it the highest rating.
“This shows that our work on quality and what we call ‘solid simplicity’ has paid off, and that the market values the same things we did when we developed DEFA Power,” says Martin Jonsson, Executive Vice President of DEFA eMobility.
Never before has M3 given a charging station a higher rating than this, describing DEFA Power as“ really nice looking and easy to use”.
Regarding the DEFA Power app and the PowerSmart function, M3 writes, “When electricity prices soar, you want to be able to control exactly when your electric car should charge and when it shouldn’t, especially if you have hourly pricing in your contract. When you activate EcoMode, a menu opens up that allows you to manage this. Using the app, you can of course also choose to manually limit the power or lock the charging station, allowing for the app or an RFID key to initiate charging.
Positive aspects include easy installation and a fixed cable
M3 also highlights the smooth installation process, and the journalist mentions the integrated charging cable:
“I think a fixed cable is a big plus, and with this charging station, you get six meters of quality cable included. It would cost you good money if you were to buy it separately.”
DEFA Power is the only one of M3’s tested charging stations that has the unique combination of being solar-ready, having a display, a fixed charging cable, and 4G-connectivity.
“M3’s test confirms that DEFA Power has what customers demand. The integrated charging cable and the intuitive display are incredible strengths, and we are proud to offer a product that has ‘everything,'” concludes Martin Jonsson.
