”JBL’s Charge 5 hails from a victorious and dominant product line, and the winning trend does not stop here.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

Punchy, JBL sound

Featuring optimised, long excursion driver, dedicated tweeter and dual radiators, the Charge 5 punches hard. Just as you’d expect from audio pros, JBL, the Charge 5 gets the perfect balance between powerful, detailed sound and a natural balance – indoors or out.

Wireless Bluetooth streaming
Using a Bluetooth 5.1 connection, the Charge 5 offers an efficient, high quality wireless Bluetooth connection. Pair with your smartphone, tablet, laptop or other device and stream straight from your library or favourite music streaming service. Pair two smartphones and take it in turn to enjoy a mixed sound output.

Pump up the volume with PartyBoost
Connect multiple JBL PartyBoost-compatible speakers together and you've got yourself instant music for a house party, with music wherever you choose - indoors or out. With two or more speakers, the sound goes further around your home.

Tough and robust – IP67 waterproof and dustproof
Made from rugged materials, this punchy speaker is a tough cookie. Waterproof to IP67 standards, the Charge 5 is not just resistant to rain and spills but can even survive being immersed in water. It’s dustproof, too, making it the perfect speaker for the beach or dusty trails.

Long lasting battery that will also charge your mobile
Using a high capacity 7500mAH battery, the Charge 5 can party hard for up to 20 hours. A USB output means that you can also charge up your smartphone on the move.

Take JBL’s pro sound wherever you travel, with the JBL Charge 5.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good speak for the price I bought this a week ago and the speaker is amazing and good quality. I would recommend. Only slight issue I have is when I connect it to my tv. The speaker starts to glitch the sounds when connect to Bluetooth on the tv. Not sure what the reason is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding bluetooth speaker I bought this to replace my Flip2 (which is still in full working order, just needed something with a bit more ooomf!) Thumping, room shaking bass when you need it. Even on the quieter volume you can still feel the bass, I get at least three days of play (approx 8 hours a day) working from home. I'd recommend JBL to anyone thinking of buying an audio product, the sound drivers are insane for a speaker of this size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound and easy to set-up! I bought the JBL Charge 5, 2-3 weeks ago for a birthday. Hooked it up to another JBL for a great house filling sound. Pairing both to my laptop and between the devices was a doddle. Don't be fooled by the size of the JBL, once paired to another, what a sound! Looking forward to getting my brother-in-laws onto the system too...3JBL 5's together....
