Excerpt: JBL's Charge sells itself as a portable wireless stereo speaker with impressive gadget-charging capabilities all rolled into one attractive and compact device. If there ever was a portable speaker that combined all-day long battery life, an ultra-fast backup battery charger with big sound in a small package - it would definitely have to be the Charge, and the Charge alone.
Conclusion: With its unflappable exterior shell, sporty design, and vigorous display of power and definition, JBL’s Charge is a worthy successor to the Flip. The speaker is light on features, but when it comes right down to it, sound is the great equalizer, and the Charge provides all you need to enjoy your music wherever you are. If you’re looking to get into the portable Bluetooth game, or step up to something more rugged and powerful, the Charge is a great option.
Pros: High max volume, Clear and detailed sound, Durable body armor, User-friendly design
Cons: Light feature set for the price, Mediocre bass response
Excerpt: Since the core Charge experience is nearly identical to Flip’s—a tube with two 40-millimeter speakers, a 10-watt amplifier, a Bluetooth wireless chip, and a rechargeable battery—one might imagine that there wasn’t much room for differences between the models, but that’s not the case. Charge is nearly an inch longer than Flip, measuring around 6.9” from end to end, and thicker with a nearly uniform 2.7” diameter versus Flip’s uneven but mostly 2.4” center.
Excerpt: Ud over et kompakt og transportabel t design samt trådløs Bluetooth-forbindelse til mobil, tablets og MP3-afspillere udmærker JBL Charge sig ved at have så kraftigt et indbygget batteri, at den ikke blot kan holde musikken kørende 12 timer på en opladning, men også oplade din mobil eller andre gadgets, selvom højttaleren ikke er sluttet i stikkontakten.
