JBL Charge 4 review


Minor updates to an already excellent speaker

Balanced, powerful sound ; Can charge your phone ; Long battery life

Some distortion at high volumes ; No 360-degree sound ; Long charge time

The JBL Charge 4 only offers minor updates to the previous generation but it remains an excellent value in wireless speakers. The Charge 4 can pump out gobs of bass that doesn’t overwhelm, lasts forever, and can top up your phone in pinch. If the bulky...

JBL Charge 4 review: Portable yet powerful


This portable Bluetooth speaker has epic battery life and big sound. It's not the prettiest going, but does that matter when it sounds so good?

Big sound quality from this size ; Lots of bass ; Portable and water resistant ; Long battery life

Slow to recharge (and requires mains plug too) ; Not the most attractive of designs

No, it's not the prettiest portable Bluetooth speaker. But it is very portable, rugged, waterproof, has epic battery life, and sound that'll blow your socks off - especially considering its small scale. All that makes it easy to recommend.

JBL Charge 4 review: The best value Bluetooth speaker?


Despite cutting a couple of handy features, the Charge 4 is an impressive fourth entry into JBL's mid-range Bluetooth speaker series

Rugged and waterproof ; Impressive audio ; Doubles up as a power bank

No speakerphone or voice assistant ; Generation-specific multi-speaker pairing

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.

The Charge 4 sounds excellent for a mono speaker at this price. Its solid build is waterproof and, for all of its output, not terribly big. There are other solid options in this price range—the EcoXGear EcoSlate, the Bose SoundLink Color II, and the...

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.

Packs a punch for such a compact unit.


Bought this for the garden and definately has the wow factor. Such a clear sound for a compact speaker. Richer sounds price matched this before and after purchase. Excellent service

tidy portable good value


I bought this a month ago and think that considering its size and price it is a good speaker. In no way does the sound compare with a hi fi speaker with a separate amplifier etc. in terms of sound quality.

Consumer review (

Great sound anywhere!


I bought this as a birthday present, replacing a Boom 2 that had died. Really pleased with its sound. The punchy bass doesn't muddy the mid range or muffle the high frequencies, and it's genuinely portable, light enough to carry around and has...
