JBL Charge is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 212.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sound for the size. I bought this for my son that wanted something better than his small bluetooth speaker on sale. Definitely money well spent. I just wished I bought one too for myself.

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).

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.
