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.

JBL Charge is rated 4.3949 out of 5 by 157.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More expensive units don't sound this good!!!!!!!! I purchased this unit 6months ago and I couldn't be happier. It's got great sound , long battery life, it looks good. It even fits into my cup holder in my work truck. I'm a fiber splicer for Verizon and I spend a bunch of time in my truck and this help me pass the time. I've used many other Bluetooth radios and this one is the best. I highly recommend. I only wish it had a speaker phone capability but it's not that big of a deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice For The Money After reading many online reviews (and hearing the Jawbone Jamboxes owned by friends) I decided on the JBL Charge. Shortly after buying it, however, I read such a positive review of the Logitech UE Mini Boom that I decided to give it a listen at a local Best Buy. One of their employees also recommended the JBL Charge. I decided to buy them both and compare them against the Charge. Results: the UE Mini Boom had surprisingly low volume and very flat sound. The Flip was louder, with better sound, but lacking enough bass for me. The Charge was just as loud as the Flip, had great sound, and the extra bass that I wanted. For the money, I don't think it can be beat. I'm keeping the Charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegantly Simple Design, Outstanding Performance Superb sound; clean and balanced accross the whole frequency range. The bass output, thanks to the port on the end of the Charge, is clear and deep. The firts bluetooth pairing couldn't be easier, and switching the connection to another device is equally easy by simply holding down the power button to put the Charge back into pairing mode. The Charge is going to be a must-pack item for all of my travelling from now on!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sound I bought this six months ago for the sound quality of JBL speakers. We own studio speakers that are phenomenal. This small speaker was great until two days ago. The speaker stopped working, now I have to try and take it back for an exchange. Three days I would have recommended this to my friends, but not now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Multiple Micro USB Cable Failures 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't stop playing with it! Thought I was going to buy another boombox for use outside at the house, but after I saw the Charge, everything I used to know about portable audio was out the window. I use this with my Iphone for both my music library and Tunein Radio. Even at full volume, no audible distortion. This thing's going on vacation to the beach this summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Volume and clarity is great! I bought it for a loud speaker in a loud warehouse environment. Everyone comments on the fantastic sound quality. Three co-workers have purchased one since they heard mine. Bluetooth is very convenient. Good choice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from love sound and portability - SAVE UR RECEIPT I bot one in Feb 2014, liked it so much that I bot one for my girlfriend. Hers wouldn't charge after she had it for 3 months - luckily she had receipt and it was exchanged. Mine now is giving me the flashing red LED and won't charge either. - I was trying to find a reset or something on the web but no luck. So now, I will try another charger to see if the charger is bad, If that is not the problem, then I will also exchange mine. Beware of this issue and like the other posts - SAVE YOUR RECEIPT
