The JBL® Charge delivers unsurpassed portable audio performance from your mobile devices and tablets. It provides more than 12 hours of playback time from its built-in, high-capacity, 6000mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery, and it can even charge your other mobile devices on the go via its built-in USB port. With two 1-5/8-inch (41-millimeter) full-range drivers and a built-in bass port, it produces full-range JBL sound with exceptional bass. It also wirelessly streams audio from any Bluetooth®-equipped smartphone or tablet. The JBL Charge wireless speaker is a portable audio powerhouse for any environment.

Features

  • High-capacity, 6000mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery
    The JBL Charge stereo speaker has a massive, built-in, 6000mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery that provides more than 12 hours of playback time on a single charge. The battery is easily recharged from the speaker’s built-in USB port, which saves you battery hassles and money.
  • Recharges your external devices
    The JBL Charge speaker’s high-capacity battery has so much juice that you can even use it to recharge your other portable devices from the speaker’s built-in USB port while you’re on the go. So you don’t need to carry an extra charger to keep your devices powered up.
  • Bluetooth technology
    The JBL Charge portable speaker streams audio wirelessly from any Bluetooth-equipped device, making JBL sound available for a wide range of portable devices, including tablets.
  • Built-In Bass Port
    Some portable speakers produce less-than-impressive bass. Not the JBL Charge. It has a built-in bass port and generates bass that similar portable speakers simply can’t equal.
  • Full-Range JBL Sound
    With two 1-5/8-inch (41-millimeter) JBL drivers and a 2 x 5-watt amplifier, the JBL Charge generates room-filling audio – impressive performance for a compact speaker that goes anywhere with you.
  • Versatile, Portable Design
    The JBL Charge stereo speaker plays from either a vertical or horizontal position, so you can use it in a variety of locations. And it fits easily into a backpack, so you can take it from one place to the next.
  • Built for durability
    With the JBL Charge speaker, strength isn’t limited to audio performance. From its rugged case and grille to the rubber end rings and a rubber cap for its USB port, the JBL Charge has the durability that your active lifestyle demands.
  • LED Indicator
    The JBL Charge’s clearly visible LED lets you know when its built-in battery needs to be recharged as well as when the speaker is in the Bluetooth listening or pairing mode.

I compared many (JBL Charge, Jawbone Jambox, Bose SoundLink and Beats Pill) at a local retail store and after an hour of listening, comparing and connecting to each I decided to purchase the JBL Charge. I was very surprised with the quality of the sound compared to the other three. It had the right amount of highs and lows for my ears. The other three were just to low (to much bass) that when I cranked up the volume the sound became very distorted unlike the JBL where it just got better and better. After my purchase I immediately when home opened, connect and listened for a couple of hours straight. On another note that has me really impressed me with the JBL is I visited a friends house for a BBQ and there were two of the other units there (Jawbone & Bose) and we compared all three at the same and boy did others at the BBQ really rave about the JBL for the quality of the sound; even those that owned the other two units! They all said the highs were really impressive with just the right amount of bass. Three key features of the JBL charge that made my decision were: 1) Price $149 (Jawbone $199 & Bose $299) 2) The design and size were just right for me (Jawbone was to small, Bose was to large & Beats was just an odd shape) 3) The battery life is 12 hours, even though I have not been able to put it to the test it also has the capability of charging your phone at the same time if it was put to the test as I know my phone would not outlast that (Jawbone & Bose 3-4 hours with no options to charge your phone). I did play it for 4 hours while charging my phone to a full battery (from half charged) and there were still 2 lights lit out of 3 for the charge status. In just the couple weeks I have owned it I have been very pleased and will continue to take to any function and/or event I attend to show and share its great sound and options!!!

Our family has three JBL Charge speakers. Every one of them has the same fatal flaw--the micro USB cables that allow the speaker to charge have all failed. As they begin to fail, they quit charging easily and you are left to manipulate the cord into an awkward position to keep charging. Later the cables just quit connecting altogether. The part literally came apart in my hand as I was plugging it in on one of my speakers. If this happened once, I wouldn't worry about it, but when it happens with ALL THREE speakers we own, there is a serious problem. I can't recommend this one.

Great sound, lousy durability

By 

from Leura, New South Wales, Australia

Comments about JBL Charge Green Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

My JBL Charge was great - for the first year. Then, about a month after it was out of warranty, it stopped charging. Now it will only 'trickle-charge' from the USB of a computer, taking 8 hours + for a full charge, making it virtually useless for someone like me who wants to use it regularly.

Charging Unit Failed -

By 

from Cleveland, Ohio

Comments about JBL Charge Green Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

When the unit works its perfect. However, it appears as others have stated that the unit fails in a very short time (purchased XMAS 2014) frame with the ability to charge it. As with anything I don't have the receipt..so I'm going to see if JBL will resolve my issue through customer support.

This product is absolutely must buy if you're looking for a portable Bluetooth system. The sound quality and loudness is one of the best I've heard. This system makes me appreciate my sense of hearing on a whole new level. Can't stop listening to it!
