It’s an iconic piece of portable audio that was born to be the life of the party anywhere you put it, whether in your living room or in the great outdoors..

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 Perfect Balance of HIGHS and LOWS I haven't had the chance to use my Charge 2+ much yet, but it connects easily and sounds great. Bass thumps without becoming distorted. The highs are crisp.

My jbl is coming on but when I connect it to my phone it's not playing anything but I know the music is playing. Is there anyway to rest them? I'm guessing it's the speaker not working. And I believe I've had it a little over a year.

Asked by: Christina lauren
What you are experiencing is not normal. First thing we should try is to un-pair your phone from the CHARGE 2 by deleting the speaker from your phone’s Bluetooth devices list. After doing so, try pairing with the speaker again by pressing the Bluetooth button on your speaker and selecting the CHARGE 2 on your phone. If this does not resolve the issue, please do a reset by pressing and holding the "Volume +" and "Play/Pause" buttons at the same time for 2-3 seconds. When the device switches itself off, it has been reset. Do the same procedure to re-pair and see if the problem persists. If none of these things work, please submit a request at and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

Battery indicator has 4 lights on which are not blinking, 1 which is blinking. Moments ago, 3 blinking brightly, 2 blinking more dimly. So is it full now, or wait for no blinking at all?

Asked by: Klara23
What you are experiencing is not normal. When the CHARGE 2 is ON, the row of 5 diodes at the bottom of the front will light up in turn, with the top flashing LED showing how far charging has progressed. When full charge has been reached, all diodes light constantly. Try a reset. In power ON mode press and hold the "Volume +" and "Phone" buttons at the same time for more than 3 seconds until it shuts off by itself. If this doesn't help, please submit a case at and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

I bought two Charge 2's, then realized they can't be used simultaneously from same sound device. Could U tell if it is possible to use Charge 3 and Charge 2 together or do i need to buy two Charge 3 if I want to advance them simultaneously?

Asked by: Alexandra
Unfortunately, only JBL Connect enabled devices such as the CHARGE 3 can be paired together, no other speaker can be paired together without the JBL Connect feature. **Other JBL Connect enabled devices: FLIP 3 PULSE 2 BOOST TV XTREME

I am interested in buying the JBL Charge can you use a SanDisk Flash drive in there to play music that you have on the flash drive

Asked by: Weber
No, the USB port of the CHARGE 2 is used for charging your media device so you can listen longer and be ready to go at a moment's notice.

Hi. Are the battery indicator led's supposed to be off during play? If I press pause on the speaker they light up again but soon turn off again. Just wondered if this was the norm. 

Asked by: MontyB
The LED lights are supposed to switch off when no buttons are being pressed to conserve battery.
