What Was the Wallbox Test About?
The magazine Auto Bild, in partnership with the P3 Institute, carried out comprehensive testing of 10 wallboxes. They focused on smart charging stations with a maximum of 11 and 22 kilowatts of charging power. The primary purpose was to find out which wallbox model provides the best prospects for installers and benefits for end users.
With its exceptional balance between affordable price and innovative features, the go-e Charger Gemini flex is a price-performance winner.
go-e Charger Gemini flex: The Price-Performance Winner
The go-e Charger Gemini flex was recognised as the best wallbox in the value-for-money category with a price advantage of around €100. It also received recognition as the preferred choice among installers, securing its position as the installer test winner. Scoring 1.7 points, it secured a remarkable position in the overall competition.
This is the second time a go-e product has won the title of price-performance ratio winner. Last year, our go-eCharger HOMEfix 11 kW was also named the best wallbox in a test conducted by ADAC, ÖAMTC and Stiftung Warentest. The test results serve as a strong reminder that price does not always reflect quality.

The standardised test catalogue included a total of 25 test categories with 93 individual tests. On the subject of safety, for instance, the triggering of residual current detection was tested.
