JBL Charge is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 213.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bluetooth speaker I have had it For about a week now and I'm super happy with it. The sound quality is amazing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, loud & clear!! My wife gave me a Charge for Christmas over a year ago. In the summer I didn't go outside without it! Being a wheelchair user, I rolled it onto my lap before going out. The Charge will play extremely loud, while maintaining it's clarity. I have also had it roll off my lap onto our cement patio many times. It has as 1 or 2 dings but usually is saved by the hard rubber rings on each end, it is solidly made & the rich sound is unharmed!! The Charge's bassy sound is unmatched by any other portable speaker I've heard.

How do I know if my speaker is blown, or if even charging? 

Asked by: LeslieMb
You would know if the speaker is blown if the CHARGE sounds different than it used to, usually a lot of distortion or static on the sound. An indicator light will blink red if the battery needs charging.

I am moving to the UK and have a pretty new JBL speaker from Canada that I want to use there, I'm hoping I didn't wast 350 dollars. How can I tell it will not blow up and I can use it to charge the bluetooth speaker

Asked by: Kelly80
Yes, you can still use your CHARGE since the charging adapter is auto-volt (100-240V).

I use the aux cord to my laptop headphone port and make phone calls. I can here the other caller good but they have a hard time hearing me. What can I do to improve the call quality?

Asked by: CJ36
Unfortunately , the CHARGE doesn’t have a built in microphone. So when using Skype, for instance, it will only act as a speaker. While you hear people on the CHARGE, you are still using the integrated microphone on your laptop. To improve the call quality on your laptop, I would recommend to visit your laptop's manufacturer support website to check an article addressing this issue.
