Summary: We bought 2 of these. Overall I think it's a nice looking product and works well the sound quality is good form factor is good. Now here comes the bad part. My son had his IPhone on this charger somehow as the IPhone was taken out the little piece that connects to the IPhone broke off into the Iphone and it was stuck there. The warranty department from JBL is replacing it but alsmost brand new IPhone is has this piece stuck in it and I'm unable to remove it.
Excerpt: It does not do any of these at the same time
-Charging: It shows that it's charging but it the battery level never goes up it goes down.
-Docking on Batteries: Speaker does not work at all after my last firmware update trial.
I am not sure how long the firmware update should last. It's on for 15 minutes but still the amber/white light is on and off.
Totally disappointed with the firmware quality. The speaker quality overall is good though.
Summary: I purchased this unit in hopes that it would charge my phone and I could use it to wake up to music using the iHome app that fades in the music gradually as an alarm. Well, come to find out that if it doesn't have any sound coming into it, it shuts off after a short while. First it goes into "standby" mode, and then it totally shuts off. So of course I didn't hear my alarm.
Excerpt: I bought this dock for my office. I had an old version that worked well with my old phone. I am sorry to say this one does not work. My phone does not connect (for charge or music playback) at least 80% of the time. I wrote to JBL and have yet to hear back from anyone. Poor product and poor customer service.
