JBL Charge is rated 4.375 out of 5 by 192.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sounds good for the size, charging port a plus I'm replacing the HMDX Jam, and this JBL Charge definitely has better sound quality. I was looking for something with stereo speakers, which this has. You're not going to get booming bass out of this portable speaker, but the sound quality is definitely pleasing. The guys that work in my office were definitely impressed! I also bring it to work to charge my phone when it gets depleted I did buy this refurbished, and was not impressed with the finish of the product. The volume button appeared as though someone has gotten food residue in the crevice. Then, the speaker started doing weird stuff, and wouldn't connect. I had to order a replacement unit. Hopefully the replacement will work better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Little Speaker I had previously owned several bluetooth speakers...everything from the Cambridge Oontz Angle to AmazonBasics to Anker to Urge Sound Brick, etc. Most in the $30 range. I use them on the job site flipping homes and sometimes the volume of the $30 speakers gets drowned out from the noise of saws, drills, and such. So I decided to try the Charge. Worth every penny. Volume is about twice as loud as those others and the bass is pretty good for something this size. Don't expect full sized speaker sound, but for the size it is very good. Most people know this...but for those who don't, place the speaker in a corner (preferably a corner with upper cabinets like in a kitchen) and your bass will be MUCH better than sitting in the open.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I expected I bought this unit mostly because of its shape, I wanted to slide it into the bottle holder on my bike so I could listen to music without headphones. It works well for that but the sound quality is good enough that I've used it to replace the radio in my truck. I link my iPhone to this unit and listen to podcasts all day long. I've hard wired a charger into the car and now this provides my in-car entertainment. Finding this item on clearance was an added bonus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent speaker I bought this item on sale for $50...good deal. Portable Bluetooth speakers really should only have a value of around $50 USD anyway, paying anything more would be because you can afford to...Anywho, this speaker has a Bluetooth range of 30-40 feet. Quality of sound is great, range from bass to treble is noticeable. The battery takes a while to charge, and would last up to 3 to 4 hours of play. Overall, if you can get this on sale, buy it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Blue charge 2 USB charging port is excellent, sound quality crisp and clear. Lacking in the sub woofer range, only having it in one side. Battery life awesome. But not having the ability to connect wirelessly to another BT speaker is a draw back. Overall very pleased with product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound. Unit was in decent physical shape. Nice unit. Great sound. Only possible issue is the mini-usb connector is a bit floppy. Have to wiggle the cable to get it to charge. I may try tightening the socket a bit with a small screwdriver. That should do it, as long as its not the solder joint that's loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound The radio in my car stopped working, so I decided to use my mobile phone (iheartradio, etc.) and bought this JBL for better sound. IT's great and I saved a ton of money. Plus, I get to use this speaker elsewhere and charge my mobile phone!

Daughter traveling to India, so what will she need to make it work there, like can be plugged into euro style adapter?  How much does this unit weigh?

Asked by: kmpshopping
The CHARGE comes with a multi-voltage power supply. So she will be able to plug this in and charge it over in India without issue. The unit weighs 1.2kg (2.65lbs).
