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.

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.

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.

Hi, ive just purchased a Charge2+, the guy in the shop set it up on his phone so we could hear the quality of the speaker. Now its home.. I cant connect it to my iphone. I press the bluetooth button, but nothing happens. Please help. Thanks. Vikiplum

Asked by: Vikiplum
It is imperative to know that once the Bluetooth button is pressed on the CHARGE 2+ with the power on, LED should start blinking . If it doesn't flash, pairing cannot take place. Try a reset. In power ON mode, press and hold the "Volume +" and "Phone" buttons at the same time for 2-3 seconds. The CHARGE 2+ will power off, and is now reset. Power it back on, search Bluetooth devices from your iPhone and connect to the CHARGE 2+. Play music and enjoy.

Can i connect multiple unit charge 2+ by using bluetooth? or is there any feature like JBL connect on Charge 2+?

Asked by: Romy
Unfortunately Charge 2+ is not a JBL Connect enabled speaker that can be paired wirelessly to stream music from one source device. The only models with this feature at the moment are FLIP 3, BOOST TV, CHARGE 3, XTREME and PULSE 2.

My Charge 2 has a problem with the micro jack. For some time the ability to get a charging cable to connect has involved wiggling connector until charging starts. Thoughts?

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.
