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 have had a jbl charge shadow for several years now and it will no longer pair with my tablets or phones. Any fixes known?

Asked by: Stephen g
What you are experiencing is not normal. Please try to do a reset on your unit by pressing and holding the “Volume –“ and the “Power” buttons simultaneously while the unit is on. When the unit turns off, the reset is successful. Delete the CHARGE from your device’s Bluetooth list and try to re-pair by pressing and holding the Power button on the CHARGE for 3 seconds until the LED flashes blue and red. If this does not help, please submit a request at www.jbl.com/contactus and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

Asked by: Aniekan
The battery for the CHARGE is not user serviceable, which means that only authorized service centers/factory technicians can replace the battery. I noticed you are in Nigeria. Please contact the store where you purchased it and they will be to locate the nearest authorized service center in your area.

I have a "charge2". power light is on and one red l.e.d lit.   it won't shut off or charge up. tried the power and minus volume together and nothing.. any ideas?

Asked by: zach26
Please try one of the options to possibly resolve what you are experiencing with the CHARGE 2. -In power ON mode press and hold the "Volume +" and "Phone" buttons at the same time for more than 3 seconds until it shuts off by itself. -Disconnect cabling and unpair/disconnect any devices which may be paired/connected Bluetooth. Allow the battery to completely discharge. Apply the power source and allow the battery to charge completely. If none of these things work, please submit a request at www.jbl.com/contactus and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.
