Pros: Comes in black, green or blue. Battery lasts 12 hours. Charges your phone. More affordable than similar-size Bluetooth speakers. Small, easy to carry.
Cons: Sound quality can’t match that of the competition.
Summary: At a price of Php7,995 , you can get the JBL Charge both as an amazing set of speakers and as a charger for your portable devices. It’s something light enough for you to bring along with, and it’s extremely loud with the quality being impressive. While the design is cool, it can use some polishing, and while the music produced isn’t even half bad, it can also use a little boost. Nevertheless, the JBL Charge stands up for its name – it’s powerful.
