JBL Charge Speaker: Size of a Beer Can, Sounds Big as a Keg
14 April 2014
Excerpt: If you're looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker, JBL just rolled out its JBL Charge, a beer-can sized speaker that promises great sound and plenty of battery life. The speaker's 6000 mAh lithium-ion battery can also be used to charge any gadget that uses USB for power.
Excerpt: With music, it’s often what you don’t hear that tells you whether it’s any good. The absence of good orchestration or arrangements, or the lack of tonal quality in a voice, means the band/artist probably should have spent more time in the studio (or possibly in rehab).
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.
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...
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: . The JBL Charge is the follow-up, of sorts, to that speaker, and addresses a few of the shortcomings its predecessor had. No more proprietary charging. Much longer battery life.

This, to say the least, is very disappointing since many people will buy this speaker not only for its sonic capabilities, which...
Pros: Sonically great, charge your 5V devices on the go, somewhat rugged build
Cons: No mic for speakerphone, 6,000mAh battery falls short for recharging
