"This Little Cylinder is Badass"
The great-sounding JBL Charge is a 2 x 5-watt portable stereo speaker with a high-capacity, 6000mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery, a built-in bass port, and wireless Bluetooth streaming.
"To put it bluntly, this little cylinder is badass," reports Ryan Waniata in a August 28, 2013 digitaltrends.com review. "The Charge provides rich definition, as well as some of the brawniest velocity in its class, blasting us out of the room at full volume, and easily cutting through outdoor ambience."
The Charge delivers unsurpassed portable audio performance from your mobile devices and tablets. It provides more than 12 hours of playback time from its built-in, high-capacity, 6000mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery, and it can even charge your other mobile devices on the go via its built-in USB port. The battery is easily recharged from the speaker's built-in USB port, which saves you battery hassles and money. An 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.
Full-range JBL Sound
With two 1-5/8" full-range drivers and a built-in bass port, it produces full-range JBL sound with exceptional bass. It also wirelessly streams audio from any Bluetooth-equipped smartphone or tablet. It's a portable audio powerhouse for any environment.
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.
Recharges Your External Devices
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.
Versatile, Portable Design
The Charge 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. And its 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 Charge has the durability that your active lifestyle demands.
"To put it bluntly, this little cylinder is badass… The Charge provides rich definition, as well as some of the brawniest velocity in its class, blasting us out of the room at full volume, and easily cutting through outdoor ambience. The speaker's bright and punchy upper register walks a tremulous tightrope between brilliance and sibilance, emerging as the victor for the vast majority of musical genres to produce potent detail, and fluid clarity."
