The JBL Charge stereo speaker has a massive, built-in, 6000mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery that provides more than 12 hours of playback time on a single charge. The battery is easily recharged from the speaker’s built-in USB port, which saves you battery hassles and money.

The JBL Charge speaker’s high-capacity battery has so much juice that you can even use it to recharge your other portable devices from the speaker’s built-in USB port while you’re on the go. So you don’t need to carry an extra charger to keep your devices powered up.

The JBL Charge portable speaker streams audio wirelessly from any Bluetooth-equipped device, making JBL sound available for a wide range of portable devices, including tablets.

Some portable speakers produce less-than-impressive bass. Not the JBL Charge. It has a built-in bass port and generates bass that similar portable speakers simply can’t equal.

With two 1-5/8-inch (41-millimeter) JBL drivers and a 2 x 5-watt amplifier, the JBL Charge generates room-filling audio – impressive performance for a compact speaker that goes anywhere with you.

The JBL Charge stereo speaker plays from either a vertical or horizontal position, so you can use it in a variety of locations. And it fits easily into a backpack, so you can take it from one place to the next.

With the JBL Charge speaker, strength isn’t limited to audio performance. From its rugged case and grille to the rubber end rings and a rubber cap for its USB port, the JBL Charge has the durability that your active lifestyle demands.

The JBL Charge’s clearly visible LED lets you know when its built-in battery needs to be recharged as well as when the speaker is in the Bluetooth listening or pairing mode.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indestructible I've had my JBL Charge over 2 years and use it almost daily at work. I drive a big brown truck for a living and my Charge sees a lot of abuse. One summer day, I was driving down a main road doing 45 miles an hour and hit a large bump. My Charge bounced out of the truck onto the road and I watched it in my mirror bouncing and skipping down the road missing semi's and cars. I turned around to get it expecting to see it in pieces. When I got in Bluetooth range, it started playing again! With only a dent or two and a year later, it still works perfectly!!! I tell everyone this story!! Todays America sell so much worthless junk but your product renews my faith that some companies still have pride and heart in their name!

I have had a jbl charge shadow for several years now and it will no longer pair with my tablets or phones. Any fixes known?

Asked by: Stephen g
What you are experiencing is not normal. Please try to do a reset on your unit by pressing and holding the “Volume –“ and the “Power” buttons simultaneously while the unit is on. When the unit turns off, the reset is successful. Delete the CHARGE from your device’s Bluetooth list and try to re-pair by pressing and holding the Power button on the CHARGE for 3 seconds until the LED flashes blue and red. If this does not help, please submit a request at and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

The battery for the CHARGE is not user serviceable, which means that only authorized service centers/factory technicians can replace the battery. I noticed you are in Nigeria.

I have a "charge2". power light is on and one red l.e.d lit.   it won't shut off or charge up. tried the power and minus volume together and nothing.. any ideas?

Asked by: zach26
Please try one of the options to possibly resolve what you are experiencing with the CHARGE 2. -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. -Disconnect cabling and unpair/disconnect any devices which may be paired/connected Bluetooth. Allow the battery to completely discharge. Apply the power source and allow the battery to charge completely. If none of these things work, please submit a request at and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

Is there any way to turn off bluetooth in Charge? I just want to connect it through Aux port at the back of this JBL Charge. The blue light at power button keeps blinking. I know it is trying to pair with some bluetooth devices. Thanks.

Asked by: jala
Unfortunately, the Bluetooth remains active and cannot be disabled. The Bluetooth connection disconnects automatically when the device source is connected via AUX.

I'd be using this always plugged in and with the aux. In that scenario, does this unit go into a Sleep/Standby mode require a press of the on button to wake it or would it remain always on and ready to play?

Asked by: darkenney
When the AUX-in source volume is very low, the product may enter standby mode. Increase the volume on the source device to prevent the CHARGE from entering standby.

The JBL Charger speaker is not connecting with my IPAD bluetooth? My IPAD bluetooth works with other speakers and computer I have?   

Asked by: Marinag
When you press the power button on the CHARGE to turn it on, it has to be pressed and held again for 3 seconds, enabling Bluetooth pairing mode. The ring around the power button will now alternate between blue and red. Search Bluetooth devices from your iPad and connect to JBL CHARGE. Play music and enjoy.
