JBL Charge 4

 

The JBL Charge 4 is an excellent option for those who want a waterproof, powerful-sounding portable Bluetooth speaker in a moderately sized frame.

Powerful audio performance with rich bass and crisp, clear highs. Gets quite loud for its size. Waterproof.

No speakerphone function. Mono audio output.

JBL Charge 4 Review

 

The JBL Charge 4 is a good speaker that fills a very specific niche: a long weekend trip car camping or to a remote cabin with a large group of people. In...

If you need a loud speaker that can last all night and won't skip a beat if it gets spilled on or dropped in the dirt, the fits the bill. Just don't expect absolute top-tier sound, nor a particularly portable design.

Review: JBL Charge 4 rocks and pops in rugged style

 

The JBL Charge 4 is a waterproof, mono, Bluetooth speaker offering 30W of power, 20 hours playtime and acts as a power bank. Perfect for those rugged

Great build;Loud with good low bass;Huge battery life – we did not exhaust it in 20 hours at 50% volume (65dB)

It's just a damned good BT waterproof speaker – no frills.

Fab speaker. Great sound and i just love JBL

 

I have other JBL speakers including the party box 300 and a pop they are both great for different things. I decided I wanted something portable but better sound than the pop and the charge 4 is great. Great sound and a great level of base

Speaker came with broken bass

 

Just plugged it in and it came with no bass which whistled when it is louder, although it was bought as a present so it is hard to exchange it.

Great sound for camping weekend.

 

Good battery life straight out of the box. Used also in home office as background music- goes up in volume just when you need it.
