Great portable speaker for its price
Was looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker and found this with an additional discount costing me only $100. Shipment was fast as advertised. Even at $140, this is still a good buy. I don't have an audiophile ear but the sound this small speaker is giving is good enough for me. Time will tell if this will survive the outdoors and camping trips its going.

Great for Travel Tunes!
This my second purchase of this speaker. I took the first one on a sailing excursion in Fiji. One of the crew guys liked it so much, I gave it to him as thanks for the great trip! So I needed another.

JBL Charge 4 Speaker
Was pleasantly surprised by the sound that comes from this small speaker. Definitely worth the investment that I made. Would like to pair up with the JBL Boombox. Maybe JBL would kick in a nice incentive to allow for me to purchase one!!!

How loud does it in SPL? (decibels)
A shopper on Nov 1, 2018
  The manufacturer doesn't publish an SPL measurement however I can tell you that the unit gets very loud. 30 watts with a speaker perfectly matched to it's amplifier produces significant volume for it's size.
Will this be louder then the flip 3?
A shopper on Oct 5, 2018
  Louder and with significantly better tone than the Flip.
Is it waterproof?
Jared T on Jul 21, 2019
  It is
How loud does it get in decibels?
A shopper on Nov 1, 2018
  Sorry, JBL doesn't provide that specification. However, user reviews show that owners are very satisfied with the volume.
Will the charge 4 and the charge 3 be able to sync?
A shopper on May 20, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The Charge 4 is an updated version of the Charge 3. The Charge 4 has an updated Bluetooth V4.2 so it syncs better with far less latency. If you have a Charge 3 it will pair with the Charge 4 but without perfect sync.
Can I use this with my Sony CD player as an auxiliary speaker?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The JBL Charge 4 can only receive signal via Bluetooth. The is no wired analog audio input. If your Sony CD player has Bluetooth capability then it could be paired with the JBL.
Does it have DEHP material in it?
A shopper on Jul 6, 2019
  We really have no way of knowing the internal material component composition.
How do I use the buttons?
Klutch on May 6, 2019
  There are buttons for power, Bluetooth pairing and volume up and down.
How will this compare with the bose revolve+ ?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2018
  Excellently, they are both wonderful sounding speakers form two of the greats in the industry.
How much louder will this be than the flip 4?
A shopper on Oct 4, 2018
  This will be not only significantly louder, but it will also have richer tone.
When will speaker arrive?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2018
  Orders are processed and shipped by our warehouse within 24-48 hours, with most orders shipping the same day they are placed. Once shipped, transit times are typically 1-5 business days. For more information about our shipping policies, please click here
