When it comes to wireless speakers, you typically have to choose between sound quality and portability. The more portable you’d like your speaker, the less performance you can expect. The JBL Charge 2 is looking to change all that.
The original JBL Charge was one our favorite bluetooth speakers, and the follow-up has improved on that already impressive platform. Measuring in at just under 9 inches in length, and weighing a mere 2.2 pounds, the Charge 2 is a truly portable offering. But don’t let the small size fool you. Equipped with dual drivers alongside twin passive radiators, this small stereo speaker can fill a room with big sound. The speaker features a 6000mAh Li-ion battery capable of keeping the party pumping all night long with its 12-hour battery life, and thanks to the built-in USB port you can even keep your mobile devices fully charged. Other notable features include a hands-free conference speaker phone with noise and echo cancellation along with a Bluetooth Social Mode letting up to three people take turns playing their favorite music on a single speaker. The new Charge is available in your choice of black, white, red, blue and purple. [Purchase]
