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.

The device will not charge. Please could you explain the procedure?

Asked by: Pauldennis1
Please make sure that you are charging the speaker using the correct charging port. The JBL Charge has a micro-USB charging port on the back of it similar to the charging port of an Android phone. Alternatively, if you have an Android phone, you may try and use the charging cable to charge the speaker.

My JBL Charge will no longer connect to my phone's bluetooth. It worked fine yesterday, but today my phone gives me a message "cannot communicate with JBL Charge". any ideas how to restore the communications? Is there a master reset for the Charge?

Asked by: pbshaw99
We are sorry to hear that you are having issues with your CHARGE. Please try to do a reset - In Power ON mode, press the Power and the Volume Minus buttons simultaneously. The Charge now turns off, and when you turn it on again, it has been reset. If this does not help, please submit a case at JBL.com/contactus and our Customer Service Team will be glad to assist you.

Just opened box do we need to charge before using the first time even while plugged in?

Asked by: maur
The CHARGE 3 comes with a factory charge when brand new, but it varies. With this, there is really no direct time-frame that we can provide for an initial charge. Unlike older devices that needs a certain amount of time plugged in initially, batteries now are better and does not require this. To keep the battery healthy, it is not advisable to drain the battery before charging it, small, frequent charges are better than charging it 0-100% at a time. Battery charge time from 0-100% is 4.5 hours using the cable provided.

I’m using my Charge 2+ frequently as a daily speaker. I'd like to know if it should be used only with battery or I can use while it is plugged in the energy? For a long-life battery, is it better to drain all the battery before plug in energy?

Asked by: viniciusaero
Yes, it is safe and okay to use your CHARGE 2+ while charging. It won’t damage the battery, but take note that using your CHARGE 2+ while plugged in will prolong the charging time. It is not health to drain the battery flat before charging the unit. It has been tested that small frequent charges are better for the battery than charging it from 0-100%.

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).
