JBL Charge 2+ is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 336.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy I bought this! I recently purchased the JBL Charge 2 (in purple, my favorite color!), and I could not be happier with it! I received it very quickly, and this little wonder of a speaker is absolutely amazing! The sound quality is unrivaled, and it is so easy to use (even though I am somewhat technologically impaired, myself)! It holds its charge for quite a long time, and I like that you can plug your devices into it to charge them, also. All in all, it is very simple to transport and use, and has unbelievable sound quality. I could not be happier with this purchase! JBL gets 11 out of 10 stars. Thank you! : )

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better sounding with more features! But.... I preordered this when I got the email & was happy I received it quickly. After charging it I gave it a whirl. The sound is improved from the first version. The bass, is very impressive! The few downsides is that it doesn't come with a carrying case. The speakerphone is a welcome addition, but it isn't very loud! Even trying to adjust the volume it doesn't get loud. Go figure. The final thing, it doesn't sound any louder than the 1st version even though it says it's 7.5 watts a channel. Anyways it is a good speaker & you probably can't find one with the bass this thing puts out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from That Bass O.O I saw this in a store pounding music and to be hones I was trying to find separate bass speaker from under the display table. The tremble is just as it should be. The bass is little 2 high but I would not take even a half star off cuz of that. I have tested the thing and it plays 9h at max volume I use it to play music and charge my phone everyday. Battery of the phone runs out in 4h of playing Minecraft and this speaker keeps the phone on so I can get home and charge them both.. Weird thing is... This speaker never charges my phone over 76%. Allso.. If you buy this.. Your phone charger can't charge this. I tryed and after 12h it was still under half. Charge with proper charger or a USB port form computer. The USB cable what came with this broke in 5 days.. But Idc I have the USB cables in stock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from audiophile must have While shopping for Christmas presents for others I played with the different Bluetooth speakers available in a large electronics store. I was so impressed with the full sound (75Hz-20kHz) that this thing pumped out that I couldn't resist grabbing one. After some use, trying different kinds of music, I've found I'm more impressed than when I initially found it. After a little tweaking of my equalizer I've been able to produce very clean, full sound out of this little beast. The passive radiator concept is brilliant. I've read some reviews claiming this has too much bass. You can always take bass away using an eq, but you can't make a speaker that's not capable reproducing bass ad bass. I can't believe the quality of the sound this little monster puts out. I'm in love.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No regrets I received my speaker about 2 days ago. I love it. I made sure I did all of the proper research before I bought it because honestly 150 is a lot for something like this. But I now see that it's worth every penny. The sound quality is amazing! The bass is great. I don't even have to have the volume up halfway to get a room filling sound. The only downside is that it did not come with a case. I would think that something like that would be included. Guess not. Now I have to spend more time and money trying to find something I can keep it in safely. Until then i'm going to be paranoid about something happening to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome wireless speaker! I bought a JBL Flip last December and it's really nice. Then I bought the JBL J46BT headphones and liked them too. So, when it came time to add another Bluetooth to my collection for another location this model was the obvious choice. It doesn't seem to have the volume level of the Flip but the sound is so much richer with more bass. When using the hands free phone I was told that the caller on the other end could hear me much clearer with the Charge 2 vs. the Flip. (That not why I bought it so that really isn't important to me. The extra battery life and USB port is very appreciated. Keep up the good work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from small in size, big in sound! I purchased this speaker after hearing a friends charge 1 & was impressed by the sound. The charge 2 does put out a bit more bass than it predecessor. The overall quality to price ratio is great! The new social mode & speaker phone was a great addition. The only con, is that this version does not come with the neoprene pouch, which is why I gave it 4 stars. I think that was a big mistake on their part & they do not sell one seperate at this time either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Eureka...I found it!" I had tried a could different brands before. I tried each for a few days only to realize the bass was either too extreme and the treble too weak in comparison, or the bass was kinda "flat" (changing the sound setting on my new Samsung Galaxy S6 did NOT help). So, I was discouraged enough to return both and wasn't ready to make another choice yet. Two weeks later, today, I walked into my favorite electronics store, went straight over to the portable sound system section, and did the demo of the JBL Charge 2+ and INSTANTLY loved the wonderful treble and bass. Clarity and deep perfect bass! I bought one and believe it's "keeper"!

I am unable to get my speaker to connect wirelessly to more than two devices at once in social mode, the first two connect fine but the third always gets an unsuccessful connection error. All devices are within range when attempting to connect.

Can i use my JBL Charge 2 speaker with a TV Thats not Bluetooth?

Asked by: Chick57
The JBL Charge 2 has a 3.5mm Auxiliary Line Input, and it is possible to connect your TV to the unit, using the cable like a straight 3.5mm Aux or RCA to 3.5 Aux cable. Those are your wired connection options.

Can I connect my Television and jbl charge 2 plus using an aux cable? I mean does this device support aux cable

Asked by: lokeshwar
Yes, the JBL Charge 2+ can be used to play audio content from any media devices that support aux cables, such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Using it on a television would vary per manufacturer and model. Assuming it has an Aux Out or Audio Out (3.5mm jack) port, it should work as an external speaker.

My unit only shows the power button lit up. It will not power on/off, charge, or power anything out of the USB port. lt is stuck. Any way to get it to reset?

Asked by: jeff1234
Hi. The reset of the Charge 2+ is as follows: Power the speaker on. Press and hold the "Volume +" and the "Phone" buttons at the same time. The speaker should automatically switch off after a few seconds. That is the confirmation that the reset is completed. If the procedure above does not resolve the issue, please submit a case request at www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service team will be very happy to further assist you.
