Portable Bluetooth Speaker:
The JBL Charge is a self-powered Bluetooth speaker that is ideal for your
Bluetooth enabled smartphone, tablets, players and other devices.
The JBL Charge portable speaker
streams stereo music wirelessly from Bluetooth-enabled devices such as your
Apple iOS device, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, computer/PC or other
devices. You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to navigate your
music and to view song/artist information. This unit pairs with your Bluetooth-enabled device with a single
press of a button. Once paired, the JBL Charge will automatically re-connect with
your device when in wireless range (up to 33').
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some
Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may
not support all features when used with the JBL Charge.
Full-Range JBL Sound: The JBL Charge employs digital signal
processing to generate room-filling audio from a compact
speaker. Using two 1.5" drivers, a 10-watt amplifier, and a built-in bass
port, the JBL Charge delivers full-range JBL sound with punchy bass.
Rugged Design: From its rugged enclosure 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. And it fits easily into a backpack, so you
can take it from one place to the next. A soft carrying case is provided to
protect the speaker during storage or travel.
Versatile Placement: The JBL Charge stereo speaker plays
from either a vertical or horizontal position, so you can place it in a variety
Aux Input: In addition to built-in Bluetooth, the JBL Charge is fitted
with a 3.5mm auxiliary input for connection of almost any portable audio player
with a headphone output.
LED Indicator: A clearly visible LED lets you know when the built-in
battery needs to be recharged, as well as when the JBL Charge is in Bluetooth
listening or pairing mode.
Built-in Charger: The JBL Charge is capable of recharging the battery
of your Bluetooth-enabled device from the speaker's built-in USB (type-A) port.
Now you don't need to carry an extra charger to keep your devices powered up.
This USB port does not support audio playback.
Rechargeable Battery: The JBL Charge stereo speaker has a
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, using the included AC power adapter or a free USB
port on your computer. The AC power adapter can also be used to power the speaker.
