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.

JBL Charge 4 review


Minor updates to an already excellent speaker

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.

Jbl brilliance


At first the size stunned me but then when it was switched on & played, Oh WOW!!!!! The clarity of the crystal clear sound was amazing, the low baseline is excellent. I would definitely recommend buying one to anyone.

Great, robust portable speaker.


Bought this a couple of weeks ago and really pleased with sound quality for a small unit. Feels like it's robust and could stand a few knocks. Battery life is very good.

Excellent value and very well-rounded sound


I bought this for my daughter a couple of weeks ago and when she played it, I decided I want to keep it for myself. But being a good father, I didn't! For the price, it's a robust, and extremely high-quality speaker. Really like the sound, not just for...
