Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed all round! Love the size, the design, how simple it is to operate (a few obvious buttons) and the brilliant battery life! And let's get to the sound: really impressed by the clarity, the volume and bass (you can double it by putting it in an open cupboard or corner etc.). The Bass radiators are a good visual feature too. Was a good price direct and the service was very efficient. I would definitely recommend this speaker to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speaker This speaker was better than i expected it to be. For such a small speaker it gets incredibly loud with no distortion on the bass at higher volumes. The bass is great for a product of this size and the sound quality is brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer sound We had a JBL charge that we loved and it got kicked in the pool. We were so excited to find out that the new version was fully submersible with the same killer sound. #winning#thanksjbl

I already have a Flip 4 and the new Pulse 3. I want a Charge but I would want to pair them. How long (if ever) until the Charge comes with JBL Connect+ right out of the box?

I love my JBL but I don't like that I can't play it while it's charging. Does the JBL 3 give you this capability? 

Asked by: Lorirae
Yes. The CHARGE 3 can still be used even while it's charging.

Is it normal to have a crunchy sound while playing it? Because I had it for over a year and I only noticed this sound now and I'm sure it wasn't there at the beginning!

Asked by: Adham habib
What you are experiencing is not normal. I apologize for any inconvenience caused. Please try using a different source (smartphone/tablet) to isolate the issue. If you are still getting noise from the speaker then please try to reset the CHARGE 3 by following this step: With the CHARGE 3 ON, press and hold the VOL+ and Pause/Play buttons for 5-6 seconds until the unit shuts off. I noticed that you are in Egypt. If you are still experiencing the issue, please contact the store where you purchased the unit and they will be able to help.

Why should i get the charge 3 instead of the flip 4, in the description it says the exact same thing, but the charge 3 is $50 more expensive than the flip 4. Is it bigger, or does it have better sound quality?

Asked by: Grayson2004
It will depend on what you need. If you prefer playing music with more bass, we would recommend the CHARGE 3 since it has a lower frequency response and bigger transducers than the FLIP 4. The CHARGE 3 also acts as a power bank since you can charge other devices with this speaker unlike the FLIP 4 which does not have that feature.

Want to mount the Charge3 to my wheelchair handlebars. Any suggestions ?

Asked by: Ed Booth
Unfortunately, the CHARGE 3 does not have a mounting hole for you to mount it to a certain location, as this is not what they are intended for. We apologize for the inconvenience, thank you!
