Highlights

The new JBL Charge 2, a portable stereo speaker offering best-in-class sound with dual drivers and twin passive radiators that deliver deep, accurate bass so powerful that you can actually see them trembling – even as their sound hits your ears. Featuring a 6000mAh Li-ion battery that can play up to 12 hours of music even as it recharges your smartphone or tablet, the Charge 2 is built to outlast all-night parties – as well as charge other portable devices by way of its USB port. 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.. But apart from its newly enhanced best-in-class sound and it’s ability to charge other portable devices, what puts the JBL Charge 2 at the far head of the competition are its outstanding Bluetooth capabilities. You can easily connect Charge 2 to any Bluetooth-enabled device by giving the portable’s Bluetooth key a single short press. Featuring Bluetooth A2DP and SBC codec that gives your Bluetooth powerful wireless playability, it also comes with a hands-free speakerphone conferencing microphone complete with noise and echo cancelling technology, giving both your music and your calls unparalleled wireless sound and clarity. Finally, you can access the portable speaker’s Bluetooth Social Mode, freeing up to three different users to wirelessly link their smartphones or tablets to a single Charge 2. Now you and your friends can each take a turn sharing your individual play-lists all on one speaker – so the music options never run dry. JBL sound engineers have never been strangers to taking on the biggest challenges. Charge 2 is further proof that best-in-class sound and groundbreaking innovation runs deep in our blood.

Like its long-lasting predecessor, the JBL Charge 2 features a 3.7V 6000mAh Li-ion battery that lets you play music for up to 12 hours without any need for recharge. There’s power to spare for charging your phones, tablets, and music players. That’s even more impressive when you account for its newly upgraded, best-in-class sound and overall bass output.

What’s the fun in having best-in-class sound without sharing it amongst friends? The Bluetooth Social Mode on the Charge 2 lets up to three people take turns playing their respective mobile phone, tablet, and laptop play-lists on the same portable speaker – keeping your music options nonstop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Bose I use this exclusively on the course. The bass kicks in this unit. My only complaint is I wish it had a better no-skid pads - in a golf cart this needs to be placed on a towel or it will bounce around. I've only used it for 1 round. More to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great features Used to have Bose speaker system - this sounds just as good, amazingly. It's easy to connect and has great features like speaker phone and group use. All that at a very appealing price. What's not to like?

My charge 2 was working great yesterday but now I cannot get it to turn on.  It shows no sign of life until I plug it in.   Once plugged in the power light comes on but other than that it is dead.

Asked by: Leclair
It looks like the speakers are already defective, please try and reset the speaker by following this step: Power ON Charge II / Charge 2+, then press and hold the "Volume+" and the "Phone" buttons at the same time. When the Charge II / Charge 2+ switches off after a few seconds, sounding the OFF prompt, it has been reset. If the reset did not work, we do have a partner in Canada which handles warranties for our products, you can submit an email case to info@eriksonconsumer.com or contact them at 514-457-2555 ext 2503.

You're selling the JBL Charge 2 (not the 2+) for $99.99. I assume the Bluetooth software is up to date, but what about the firmware? What version firmware will have been installed if I purchase this?

can't get the speaker to play music from my laptop using bluetooth. I have before. laptop shows the speaker is connected via blue tooth. Bluetooth emblem on the speaker is blinking.

Asked by: Jerryn
If I understood you correctly, your computer was working okay with the CHARGE 2 and now it's not. If this is the case, please perform the following: 1.Reset the CHARGE 2 by following this step: - 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. 2.Unpair/Forget the CHARGE 2 from your computer. 3.Turn the computer completely OFF. 4.Switch the computer back ON. 5.Turn the computer completely OFF "AGAIN". (this is important) 6.Switch the computer back ON. 7.Pair the CHARGE 2 with the computer. If this doesn’t help, it is possible that your computer does not support or is not setup to support Stereo Audio Bluetooth connection. Your best bet is to go into your control panel and find the Bluetooth setup. This setup usually provides a setup wizard and will take you through the steps to install the drivers needed for Stereo Audio.

My Charge 2 is paired with my Windows 10 laptop, but the Charge 2 does not connect and nothing plays. How can I get the speaker to connect and stream?

Asked by: mmmmpppp
The CHARGE 2 does not require any specific drivers. It utilizes the standard Bluetooth Stereo Audio drivers available in most computers. There are two different Bluetooth protocols, one for Headset Audio used for talking on the telephone, and the other for high quality Stereo Audio listening. Being that the CHARGE 2 is a speaker, your computer must connect to the CHARGE 2 using the Stereo Audio protocol. It is possible that your computer does not support or is not setup to support Stereo Audio Bluetooth connection. Your best bet is to go into your control panel and find the Bluetooth setup. This setup usually provides a setup wizard and will take you through the steps to install the drivers needed for Stereo Audio. If it does not have this option, you will need to add an external USB Bluetooth Stereo Audio dongle in order to make this work.
