Comments about JBL Charge Portable Bluetooth Speaker - Gray:
My iPhone 5S will not connect via Bluetooth----just keeps searching for device. I can use the JBL with a cord to listen to music--but can't listen to wireless?? Suggestions?

Battery failed after a year
from Massachusetts, United States
Worked great at first... now cant charge it... and even when plugged in does not appear to be capable of broadcasting music... even when appearing to be connected... really disappointing for the $150 ... to last essentially 1 year, with fairly limited use.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Loved it... and then it stopped working
from San Diego, CA, United States
I bought the JBL Charge and loved it. It worked great and provided fantastic sound. I used it occasionally as a backup speaker. It was perfect for vacations and random areas of the house. Unfortunately, the battery is awful. It doesn't hold a charge (ironically named) and has to stay plugged in. I considered getting another one but I couldn't justify it. This would be a great product if they could fix the battery issue. Proceed with caution and read the other reviews of people who have had it for more than 6 months.
Great sound, lousy durability
from Leura, New South Wales, Australia
My JBL Charge was great - for the first year. Then, about a month after it was out of warranty, it stopped charging. Now it will only 'trickle-charge' from the USB of a computer, taking 8 hours + for a full charge, making it virtually useless for someone like me who wants to use it regularly.
Doesnt do anything it says it does!
from Newmarket, NH, United States
Received this item through Onecall last week...Full charge only lasts 5 hours of play! on a full charge...used it 3 days in a row at work and only 5 hours! for the heck of it I fully charged it again for a third time and plugged my phone into it and listened at he same time...It didn't even last an hour and didn't even charge my phone half way....Not happy....doesn't do anything it says it is supposed to do...Joke!
Love my jambox!

Charging Unit Failed -
from Cleveland, Ohio
When the unit works its perfect. However, it appears as others have stated that the unit fails in a very short time (purchased XMAS 2014) frame with the ability to charge it. As with anything I don't have the receipt..so I'm going to see if JBL will resolve my issue through customer support.
battery dies after 12 months
Sounds great but after 12 month the battery will not charge. I
from Trinidad and Tobago
This product is absolutely must buy if you're looking for a portable Bluetooth system. The sound quality and loudness is one of the best I've heard. This system makes me appreciate my sense of hearing on a whole new level. Can't stop listening to it!
