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.

I have a jbl charge 2+ . How do i know if my speaker is fully charge i can see four solid white light and one light is blinking . When i'm charging the speaker . I got this for a gift . I dont have a manual can u send me a manual. Thank you very much.

Asked by: Alexis1
The CHARGE 2+ battery indicator would show you that it is fully charged if all 5 lights are solidly lit. If one of those battery indicators are blinking, that just goes to show that the battery is not yet fully charged. If the battery indicator is blinking after almost more than 10 hours of charging, please do submit a case to and our customer support team would be more than happy to assist you if your unit is under the 1 year manufacturers warranty.

How do I know if my jbl charge is charging

Asked by: Pattyboy206
When the CHARGE is ON, the row of 3 diodes at the top of the speaker will light up in turn, with the top flashing LED showing how far charging has progressed. When full charge has been reached, all diodes light constantly.

I've got one but all of my devices can't discover it through bluetooth, how can I fix this?

Asked by: Bach
Try and perform a reset on the speaker by following this step: 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.

Asked by: randy58
We do have a lot of portable speakers that can produce high "volume" audio with good quality. It would really boil down on where you would like to use them, if you are looking to use a portable speaker outdoors, the CHARGE and FLIP series speakers would be a good choice, but if you will be using the portable speakers for outdoor parties and such, you might want to consider the XTREME.

can you play an iphone through two jbl charge 2

Asked by: mdl7
Using Bluetooth, no. The CHARGE 2 does not have the Connect feature which allows the speakers to be synced together and paired to one device. Here are our portable speakers that have the Connect feature: XTREME, FLIP 3, CHARGE 3, PULSE 2 and BOOST TV.
