The Charge keeps it simple when it comes to design as well as features. The unit sports a power button, volume button and battery indicator on the top. One end has a bass port that helps produce better low tones than similar speakers. On the other end, a cap hides the Charge's secret power. The USB port underneath can charge a mobile device; think of it as a battery backup that can play music, too.
No other device in this price range sounds better. While the Charge lacks the features that some others $150 speakers include, such as a speakerphone or weatherproofing, the option to pow... Full review
JBL's Charge, a $149.95 (direct) portable Bluetooth speaker, delivers on one of these fronts—with certain genres, it has a pleasant richness, balanced by clear, articulate high-mids and highs. Unfortunately, distortion comes into the mix at high volumes on tracks with deep bass content. If the Charge were priced lower, we'd give it a higher rating, but its audio performance isn't quite on par with its asking price, and it lacks any real special features to make up for this.
Basically, the Charge sounds like a $100 speaker—and if that were the actual price, it would have... Full review
At $150, the Charge is a bigger investment, but it also offers better battery life and a more durable plastic shell, making it a friendlier option for the great outdoors.
Though it’s not without its flaws, 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.
With its unflappable exterior shell, sporty design, and vigorous display of power and definition, JBL’s Charge is a worthy successor to the Flip. The speaker is light on features, b... Full review
The JBL Charge does solve two of the big problems many people had with the Flip. The addition of microUSB charging and a much, much larger battery make it better-suited to compete with the premium segment of the Bluetooth speaker market. Accessory charging is an added bonus. And I can't deny the increased utility, it's a substantial improvement from the Flip in that sense (apart from the removed speakerphone functionality).
For you, the Charge may press the right buttons. It does most of what the Flip did right and more. You just have to shell out an extra fifty bucks for the privil... Full review
JBL's Charge sells itself as a portable wireless stereo speaker with impressive gadget-charging capabilities all rolled into one attractive and compact device. If there ever was a portable speaker that combined all-day long battery life, an ultra-fast backup battery charger with big sound in a small package - it would definitely have to be the Charge, and the Charge alone.
JBL's Charge is worthy of our Editors' Choice Award for performing excellent in the sound department and as a portable speaker with a fantastically useful backup battery charging feature we found came in handy on... Full review
The JBL Charge's battery will certainly last longer than your party will, unless you're engaged in some sort of dance marathon. And, it'll charge your smartphone to its full capacity in about 2 hours, and even take a power-hungry tablet more than halfway there.
It sounds better than any other of its size I've ever tested — even better than the Soundfreaq Sound Kick, my former favorite small Bluetooth speaker whose battery lasts seven hours, costs $100 and sounds great.
Is the JBL Charge Bluetooth speaker worth its $149.95 price? Yes. It sounds excellent, looks cool, is... Full review
