JBL sound follows your iPad mini anywhere.

Introducing the JBL OnBeat™ Mini, the world’s first portable speaker dock with a Lightning connector for the iPad mini, iPad (4th generation), iPhone 5, iPod touch (5th generation) and iPod nano (7th generation). It features two JBL® full-range transducers and built-in DSP (digital signal processing) that combine to deliver dynamic, space-filling sound in a compact package. Perfectly portable for music here, there and everywhere, the JBL OnBeat Mini is good to go whenever the rhythm hits you. It can rock the house for up to 8 hours on battery power and even longer on AC power. A battery-saving standby mode automatically engages after 10 minutes of non-use, and an LED status indicator lets you know when it’s time to charge the internal battery. The JBL OnBeat Mini has a 1/8-inch (3.5-millimeter) stereo input, plus touch-button volume controls and recessed connectors for easy transport. A convenient USB port provides playback from other devices and even charges them. What’s more, the JBL OnBeat Mini is so small and compact that it can go virtually anywhere with you. For convenience, versatility and portability, the JBL OnBeat Mini is easy to enjoy – and hard to beat.

JBL OnBeat Mini is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound! I bought this to take on vacation to Jamaica with me. I have an ipod Touch 5G with the lightning adapter and my old traveling speaker system wasn't compatible. I could not be more pleased. The crisp clear sound is much better than I'd hoped for. It's solidly built; very nice unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it, butt... Very nice sound. Compact portable size. Two issues: had to take my iPhone 5 out of the protective case. It will not engage engage the lightning connector with a case on. And, the so called Quick Start guide is pretty bad. a few pictures, and that's about it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great sound, Poor materials Overall good sound quality however the mechanics used to make the speaker is poor. The speaker no longer plays my phone and the charging port in the back is very loose. I've only had the speaker for about 5 months.

My JBL OnBeat Mini powers down for no reason. I want it to have my iPad mini on it as an alarm clock and music station, but the power shuts off after a few minutes, even though it still says it is charging if I go to the home screen.

Asked by: MoonLover
The ONBEAT MINI will automatically enter the Standby mode after it detects no audio signal for 5 minutes (after 10 minutes when on AC power). Upon detecting an audio signal the system will turn on and play audio.

I got my speaker for my birthday, but it only works when it is plugged in and will not work on the rechargable battery even after being plugged in all night and day.. any idea why?

Asked by: rberg19
It is possible that the ONBEAT MINI is no longer holding a charge. To determine where the problem is, please try a different charger rated at 5.9V DC, 3.33A. If this doesn’t help, please submit a case at www.jbl.com/contactus for information regarding warranty options.

Absolutely. You can purchase a power supply rated at 5.9V DC, 3.33A to your local electronics store and it will work with the ONBEAT MINI. I noticed that you are in Chile. Should you need further help, please send an e-mail to jp.monti@harman.com.
