Does this have updated firmware? I read that a firmware update made this speaker sound much better, but I wouldn't know how to update it myself. Thanks!

I had hoped to connect this to my Amazon Echo. The problem is the Charge 2+ when in Bluetooth sync mode is passive. So is Echo - both expect someone to manually accept sync. Is there an app or another speaker model I need?

Asked by: TexasTripletMom
Our portable speakers including the CHARGE 2+ doesn't support a third party speakers over Bluetooth connection. So Amazon Echo will not work with the CHARGE 2+.

What does "recertified" mean in terms of warranty? (JBL Charge 2+)

Recertified products purchased from this website come with the product's original warranty protection. For example, the CHARGE 2+ comes with a 1 year warranty protecting you against manufacturing defects.

Can it be paired with another similar speaker for stereo listening (so that one reproduces L and the other does R)?

Asked by: Curious George
The CHARGE 2 or 2+ does not have the Connect function. With that said, you can't connect two CHARGE2/2+ for stereo mode. However you can connect them via a hardwired connection using an AUX splitter cable but it would not produce stereo sound. Speakers that have the Connect feature are the following: FLIP 3, CHARGE 3, PULSE 2, BOOST TV and the XTREME.

I just bought a charger 2 and plugged it in - no sound at all little light keeps blinking and when I hit it I get this blurb blurb blurb. cant adjust the sound level either help!!

Asked by: jwicks123
Try one of these options to possibly resolve the issue. - 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. - Try a reset. In power ON mode, press and hold the "Volume +" and "Phone" buttons at the same time for 2-3 seconds. The CHARGE 2+ will power off, and is now reset. If none of these things work, please submit a case at www.harmanaudio.com/contactus and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

While playing golf & listening to my Charge 2+ thru my IPhone, I received a phone call & it blasted thru the Charge speaker system. How can I turn off the speakerphone so my fellow golfers don't strangle me?

Thank you for the inquiry. The telephone symbol on the speaker enables and disables the speaker phone feature. Best Regards.
