Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing JBL Quality I got this blue tooth beauty for Christmas. I'm an audiophile to say the least and was very happy to see JBL on the side on the box! The easiest to set up and AMAZING battery length! It goes on forever on one charge. I stand it on its end most of the time to allow the seperate sub fill the room.

Asked by: Celine
In looking at the specs for the Galaxy Tab, it has Bluetooth 4.1. On the JBL Charge, press and hold the power button for 3-5 seconds, this will put the speaker in pairing mode. Open the Bluetooth settings on the Galaxy Tab. Select the JBL Charge from the list of available devices. Enjoy your music.
