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.

I have trouble using the speaker as output for my Windows 7 laptop via Bluetooth. The laptop detects the device as such, but it cannot be set as a sound output device. Is there a specific driver/software that needs to be installed?

Asked by: Nikola
The CHARGE 2 does not need any special drivers or settings toggled to get connected to computers/laptops or any Bluetooth enabled devices. If ever the device asks for drivers, please perform the following: For Windows Operating Systems, you just need to update the Bluetooth Hardware of the computer/laptop. ** Go to Control Panel ** Go to Hardware and Sound ** Under Devices and Printers select Device manager ** In Device Manager select Network/Bluetooth Adapters ** Once there Update the Drivers For Mac OS, you would just need to update your operating system to the latest version.

Hi, may I know how long do I have to charge the battery before the first use ? And usually how long does it take to fully recharge if to be used for 10 hours, for example.

Asked by: angela1
You can use the CHARGE 2 fresh out of the box. Once the battery is drained, it will take 4 hours for a full recharge. The CHARGE 2's battery indicator would show you that it is fully charged if all 5 lights are solidly lit. If one of those battery indicators is blinking, that just goes to show that the battery is not yet fully charged.

can these be paired? i think i may have totally screwed up when i purchased them if they cannot :(

Asked by: Nicole8872
The CHARGE 2 can be paired to a Bluetooth enabled mobile device. However, if you are asking if the speaker can be paired to another speaker, that would not be possible as the CHARGE 2 does not have the Connect feature which enables 2 speakers to be paired together. JBL Connect enabled devices: *XTREME *CHARGE 3 *FLIP 3 *PULSE 2 *BOOST TV

My JBL Charge 2 Bluetooth speaker has a USB input (or output?) next to the AUX input. How do I use it? What is it for?

Asked by: DyTien
That USB port is used to charge mobile devices as the CHARGE 2 also acts as a power bank for mobile devices. Please keep in mind, it is ONLY used for charging and would not be able to read/recognize thumb drives or audio files from your mobile phone/device.

When I insert USB loaded with music in my charge2 no music output is seen. Where is it am going wrong?

Asked by: Rajeev Mathur
The USB port on the speaker is not designed to read any file from USB flash drives. That USB port is specifically designed for charging purposes only.

I'm trying to connect my charge 2 to a bluetooth transmitter hooked up to my television to use as a speaker. How do I get it to connect and play sound

Asked by: fsusmith
If your Bluetooth transmitter has a user interface from which you can choose a Bluetooth device that it will connect to, then the speaker would work. If the transmitter doesn't have that interface, then the speaker would be unable to connect to that transmitter. Our portable speakers need that interface to make sure that the speaker is properly connected to the device that it is trying to pair with.
