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 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.

can I connect 2 JBL Charge speakers to one phone for more sound?

Asked by: thecla
The CHARGE is not a JBL Connect enabled speaker. The only models with this feature that you can connect together are FLIP 3, BOOST TV, CHARGE 3, XTREME and PULSE 2. However, if you would like to connect two CHARGEs at the same time using one source device, you can use an AUX splitter cable which can be purchased at any electronics store.

Might be a silly question, but can I attach an aux cord on this product? 

Asked by: Karla
If the question is if the CHARGE can be used with wired connections, the answer is yes. The 3.5mm AUX input is located at the back near the charging port.

Is it okay to turn on while using through bluetooth while charging? TIA

Asked by: shadybaby
Yes, it is safe and okay to use your CHARGE while charging. It won’t damage the battery, but take note that using your CHARGE while plugged in will prolong the charging time.

What is the difference between this item and charge 3? Is it just because charge 3 is waterproof? Or is there any difference in sounding systems? I hope you understand ;)

There are a number of differences between the CHARGE and the CHARGE 3. Here is a list of their main differences – POWER – CHARGE 3 = 20W / CHARGE = 10W WATERPROOFING – CHARGE 3 = IPX7 Waterproof / CHARGE = none JBL CONNECT – CHARGE 3 = compatible / CHARGE = none
