Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, awesome bass Bought this a few weeks ago, I love it! Great sound, very loud, huge bass, battery lasts as advertised. Kind of pricey though, so I got a refurb, which works amazingly well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound! The JBL Charge 2+ provides classic JBL sound. You can clearly hear the lowest notes from an electric 5 string bass. You won't believe such huge sound can emanate from the small enclosure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome sound for size I bought this because it was on sale and saved $40 and was even more impressed with the sound. It is loud enough to fill a couple rooms with quality sound. It does not distort or cut out like some of the cheaper speakers I've had in the past and the battery life is longer than I expected. It's rated at 14 hours at half volume and that's about accurate, although I get a little less and probably because I turn it up and down depending on the song. As far as the charge time, it takes about four hours to completely charge from flat, but it's a small price to pay for good sound. The only downside to this speaker is that despite the cool social bluetooth feature, when you have a couple iPhones connected and someone else is playing music and your iPhone makes any sound for a notification (i.e. incoming text, call, news update, etc), it will cut in and shut off the other user's music. I fixed this by shutting off notifications but you have to remember to turn them back on... Overall, great product and very worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite BT speaker so far I've had the Big Jam box, my kids blew out the speaker. The kids had their own mini jam boxes and they are weak sounding. This Charge has amazing sound for its size in volume and Bass. I purposely got the charge 2+ because of its shape. I love riding my bike and it fits in the bottle holder. No more wearing headphone on the road but also has the added benefit when cutting through the park of not having it say on your left 50 times. People hear the music or podcast way before you get near and they move over. It's a great speaker with excellent battery life. The social mode is a gimmick in my opinion but whatever. I plan on getting another one soon for backup as I'm sure something will change eventually and when this dies I'll be heartbroken.

I placed an order for JBL Charge 2+ Splashproof Bluetooth Speaker with Powerful Bass - Red, JBLCHARGE2PLUSREDEU. Please let me know, can i use the device while charging ????

Asked by: Ajish
Absolutely. You can use the CHARGE 2+ while it is charging. This won't ruin the battery life in anyway. However, you will experience extended charging time when listening and charging at the same time. And when it is fully charged, it will run directly off the electricity.

I have two Pulse 3 speakers and I cannot get this unit to pair with either of them , will they only pair with themselves ( pulse-2)?

Asked by: Spaceman
Yes. The JBL Connect feature allows only 2 JBL Connect enabled speakers such as the XTREME, PULSE 2, FLIP 3,CHARGE 3, and BOOST TV to be paired wirelessly to steam music from one source device.

I just recently purchased this speaker a couple days ago n I was wondering if could utilize the jbl connect app n add another jbl speaker to listen to both speakers from one audio. For instance my S7 Edge

Asked by: Jmantis
Unfortunately the CHARGE 2+ does not have the JBL Connect feature, so it is not compatible with the JBL Connect App and you won't be able to sync two CHARGE 2+ together as it does not have the JBL Connect Feature. Here are the speakers with the JBL Connect Feature which is also compatible with the JBL Connect App: CHARGE 3, FLIP 3, PULSE 2, XTREME and the BOOST TV.

Hi Can I plug my Ipod Nano (4th or 5th generation) on it? There is no wireless connection. I wonder if I could make it trhough P2-P2 or USB conecction. Cheers

Asked by: Doug Beleze
You can plug the 4th or 5th Gen iPod Nano to the CHARGE 2+ via the AUX port and not the USB port. The USB port is only used for charging mobile devices such as your iPod Nano and cannot be used for audio streaming from a device.

Hello, Why my JBL Charge 2+ has a delay sound ? The sound and singer mouth is not match but why my old cheap Bluetooth speaker can play not delay? Thank you

Asked by: vichayut
If your using a PC or a laptop. 1.The CHARGE2+’s delay may be caused by a Bluetooth driver incompatibility. This can be resolved by updating your Bluetooth version.CHARGE2+’s Bluetooth version would be compatible to 3.0 and above. 2.This could also be an issue on interference when using your WIFI when playing a video online.WIFI may interfere with Bluetooth resulting to a delay.

I've tested the splash proof feature. After i get the speaker out of the water, when being shook it sounds like there is water in speaker, eventually after i shake it for a while the water comes out of it and the speaker still works fine. Is this normal?

Asked by: Cris04
The CHARGE 2+ is only splash proof and not water proof, meaning, the speaker cannot or is not supposed to be submerged in water. It would be dangerous to use the speaker with water present inside the speaker as it may cause the battery to explode. Our waterproof speaker is the CHARGE 3 which can be submerged in water without the risk of water entering the speaker.
